The Prefects 

K. Cobbett, J. Burbidge (Hf 
Prefect), The Headmaster, 


The day-to-day life of the School is run by the 
masters, assisted by a group of School Officers, 
appointed by the headmaster in consultation with a 
group of masters. The many facets of School life 
are too numerous to be handled completely by the 
masters; consequently, the School Officers handle 
a good part of the work. 

In past years, there have been two main types 
of School Officers. The Head Boys, generally num- 
bering about five. This year a new system was 
tried. The Prefects were cut down to three in number 
and the Head boys to eight. However, since there 
were not enough School Officers, the post of House 
Officer was established. House Officers have exis- 
ted in the past, but never as a recognized level of 
the School Officer. The House Officers were given 
the responsibilities and privileges of Head Boys 
in their Houses. In the School itself, seventh for- 
mers made up for the lack of table heads in the 
Dining Hall, and supervisors of pews in the Chapel. 
The new system worked well in its very first year 
of operation. 

The duties of School Officers are many and 
varied. The Prefects run the new boy line, take roll 
calls, read the Sunday lessons in Chapel, and super- 

Go in for a dirty handkerchief!'

vise their Houses and the School in general. Head 
Boys assist the Prefects with the new boy line, 
"neutral" line, and senior line. They also super- 
vise cleaning the rink in winter and rolling the 
cricket pitch in the spring. The School Officers also 
take up collection in Sunday Chapel and supervise 
the tables in the Dining Hall. One Prefect and One 
Head Boy are on duty all the time. Duty lasts for 
one week and operates on a rotational basis, thus 
each Prefect is on duty once in three weeks and 
each Head Boy once in eleven weeks. 

In addition to these responsibilities, there are 
several other individual jobs which are handled 
by School Officers. For example, one Head Boy 
supervises the waiter system in the Dining Hall 
and another supervises the Science Building. 

The School Officers are responsible to the 
masters, and in particular to the Headmaster, in the 
School, whereas in the Houses, they and the House 
Officers are responsible to their Housemasters.

Thirty one years of exemplary service will be 
terminated in June by the retirement of Miss Ella 
E. Morisette, R.N., nurse at B.C.S. since 1935. 

There was a notably high tradition of nursing at 
B.C.S. when Miss Morisette came to us. This she 
elevated by her unswerving devotion to the trusts 
of her profession and by the uncomparably even, 
fair and generous disposition which she possessed. 

The proof of a good nurse may be found in the 
absence of fuss in her record. Who remembers Miss 
Morisette as flustered or confused? Her colleagues, 
her patients drew from her strength, took heart and 
behaved more like men for their association with 
her. During her years here, she took in stride, to all 
appearances, the brief, violent crises, the pro- 
tracted adversities, and the pesky, irritating 
unpleasantnesses that turn sour so many good 
beginners. Steadfastly, she held her course. Panic 
never emanated from her strong, assuring person. 
One recalls numerous nasty fractures, deep wounds 
and ghastly facial injuries, and invariably her buoy- 
ant matter-of-factness, reducing the fears, the 
anxieties — and the suffering. 

Her cooperation with the doctors was a model 
of ethical rapport and an example of admirable 
human relationship. Their confidence in her was 
contagious; she, in turn, supported the medicos 
loyal efficiency. 

Her philosophy of living, positive, constructive, 
uncomplicated, and given upon request or upon 
observed need, has cleared the air for scores of 

boys whose suffering was of the mind rather than 
the body. 

The present School, the Old Boys and all former 
associates join in saluting the conclusion of an 
admirable career, and wish Miss Morisette a long 
and happy period of retirement. 


During his nine years as a member of the staff 
of B.C.S. Prep School, and especially during his 
four years as Master-in-Charge of the Prep Bruce 
Hunt has created for the young boys of B.C.S. a 
genuine homelike atmosphere. 

Mr. Hunt's interests have had a far wider range 
than the mere academic and athletic, for in seeking 
new activities for the boys he has fostered such 
projects as the production of maple sugar and the 
building and maintaining of huts in the woods. 

This June the Hunt family will leave B.C.S. and 
we take this opportunity to extend to them best 
wishes for continued success and to assure them 
that their absence will be marked with sadness by 
their many friends. 



After a six-year stint in School House, three of 
which were spent as lord of all to be surveyed from 
the top floor, Alexis Troubetzkoy is continent- 
hopping to St. Stephen's School, Rome, Italy. There 
he will act as assistant to the headmaster and 
teacher of Russian. 

"In all probability" and long before this date 
next year, "all things being equal", someone will 
have cause to regret the organizational capacity 
displayed by Mr. Troubetzkoy. For, during his so- 
journ here he has played an active role in such 
aspects of school life as: the Magazine, industrial 
tours, skiing, Boys' Bank, football, soccer, con- 
certs, voc .tional speakers, school dances, chapel 
Warden and mock elections. 

Blessed with a warm and friendly personality 
Alexis departs with the best of good wishes from a 
host of boys and members of the B.C.S. teaching 


"Bonjour, la classe. " 

"Vite, vite, remassez le papier sur le plancher. 
Effacez le tableau noir." 

"Repetez apres moi " 

"Ecrivez cent fois " 

"Zero and zero aren't hard to add!" 

Such remarks serve amply to recall to some 
fifteen generations of Remove Old Boys who have 
been privileged to enjoy the verve and activity and 
competence brought by Madame Smith to her classes. 

It is with a great deal of regret that we see her 
leave the School; it is with a great deal of pleasure 
that we wish her well when September will see her 
in Vermont. 




Mr. Allan came to B.C.S. from Malcolm Campbell 
High School in Montreal in September 1964. Fol- 
lowing his graduation from McGill University with 
a Bachelor of Engineering degree, a short spell in 
the business world, and a stint in the public school 
system, Mr. Allan brought to the B.C.S. Mathematics 
Department, knowledge, organization, and leader- 
ship on a wide and varied plain. This Spring he 
leaves us to accept membership in a National 
Science Foundation Academic Year Institute, at 
Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Maine. 

During his two years at B.C.S., Mr. Allan has 
been active in many areas, and the effect of his 
sincerity and initiative will long remain not only 
in the Department of Mathematics of which he was 
Head, but also in the Mathematics Club which he 
founded, on the football field, on the ski hill, and 
in Chapman House where he was Assistant House- 

Masters and Boys alike have benefited 'by his 
presence at the School, and together we wish both 
Mr. and Mrs. Allan success in the future, hoping 
that they may find time occasionally to return to 
B.C.S., where they will always be welcome. 


Three years ago, a small somewhat overweight 
gentleman received his B.C.S. baptism at the 2nd 
Annual French Summer School. The fact that he was 
of French origin, non-athletic and unilingual made 
him a "natural" for the sports-filled, Quebec a- 
dapted programme for English speaking students. . . 

Thus began the illustrious but short-lived B.C.S 
career of Gerard Robert, B.A. Caen University, 
B.Ed. Sherbrooke University. 

The impact of this "stranger" among our fold 
will be felt long after his departure. Though we 
pride ourselves in our "largesse d'esprit", never 
had we realized so fully, how biased we really were 
— for often it was difficult to accept at face value, 
his foreign accent, his way of thinking, his phil- 
osophy. The lessons we taught ourselves these 
past 3 years indebt us greatly to this sympathetic 



With the departure of Mr. Marshall, the School 
loses the good services of a master whose interests 
and abilities were always at the disposal of those 
he taught. Whether reorganizing the Prep library, 
coaching cricket or, somewhat less formally , playing 
hockey, Chris brought an enthusiasm to his varied 
activities that was a stimulating experience for 
the boys in his charge. The observatory was made 
available to the Prep through his efforts, fishing 
in the St. Francis became a popular pastime, and 
the model room was used more extensively than 
ever before under his direction. Life in Grant Hall 
will continue, but it won't be as large, perhaps not 
as loud, and certainly less lively without the sense 
of humour, warm personality and open countenance 
of Christopher Marshall stalking the corridors. 

Both boys and staff wish Mr. & Mrs. Marshall 
every success at Moira High School in Belleville,

This year's activity in the Chapel has been 
characterized by a number of additions and changes 
of some interest. To begin the year with the choir 
under a new director, Mr. David Cruikshank, who 
succeeded Mr. John Pratt as Choirmaster, was the 
first of these, and probably the most obvious; the 
Choir and its generous contribution to the school 
are always a concern, and this year we have every 
good reason to thank them and Mrs. Bell for all 
they have done so well. 

At the Carol Service this year we had the Chapel 
lit with candles, as a number of Standards, made 
by the School carpenter, Mr. Dussault, were instal- 
led for the service, and will be used from now on. 

Mr. Dussault and his staff also undertook a 
number of alterations to the altar and reredos 
screen, which allow us to make more satisfactory 
use of the sanctuary: the altar table has been shor- 
tened, and the altar moved forward on the foot-pace 
so that the celebrant and servers may pass behind 
it. The work involved required some very exacting 
craftsmanship, and the school is fortunate to have 
the facilities for this so easily available. For a 
while during the changes, the portable altar that 
had been used in the former chapel in the basement 
of School house was brought out of storage and used

From a total enrolment in September of 10 boys, 
the choir by Thanksgiving had grown to include over 
fifty members. By Christmas the waverers and in- 
betweens had been weeded out, and a team of 
fifty-four boys had begun to take shape. For the 
new choirmaster, the support of these boys has 
been greatly appreciated, for without their unfailing 
cooperation, none of the work accomplished could 
ever have been attempted. And a great deal has 
been accomplished. 

We began by tackling the singing of the Psalms, 
and we naturally went through "growing pains", 
during which the outcome of our endeavours seemed 
doubtful. By the New Year, however, initial diffi- 
culties had been overcome, and the intricate process 

of psalm singing was well on its way to becoming 
an established fact at B.C.S. At the time of writing, 
the choir was mastering the most difficult chants 
and the most awkward pointing in a matter of 

Next came the process of building up some sort 
of repertoire of Anthems. At Thanksgiving we sang 
Wesley's "Blessed be the God and Father", and 
then had to plunge into preparation for the Carol 
Service, but Lent Term provided a let-up in pres- 
sure, and we were able to rehearse and perform a 
new anthem every week. These ranged from the 
relatively simple "Jesus Joy of Man's Desiring," 
through Haydn's "Credo" from the Nelson Mass, 
and Wood's "O Thou the Central Orb", to Stanford's 


moving "Te Deum in C." Gradually the boys got 
the "feel" of reading new music, and by the end 
of the term could "rough out" in half an hour a 
piece of music, which in November would have 
taken three or four weeks to learn. 

The "big" Services came and went — Thanks- 
giving, the Carol Service, the Montreal Trip to 
Christ Church Cathedral, and the Closing Service. 
On all of these occasions the boys rallied and sang 
well, sometimes in the face of unforeseen diffi- 
culties. Yet surely it is not on "special per- 
formances" that any group should be judged. Weeks 
of dogged and persevering preparation will usually 
result in a creditable job being done; it is in every- 
day performance, in the week by week standard set 
by any group, that excellence should be found, and 
here the choir has indeed achieved excellence. The 
services in chapel, especially in Lent and Trinity 
terms, were sung with verve, with precision and 
with feeling. Leadership was provided in both said 
and sung parts of the service — the boys knew what 
they were doing and did it well. 

None of this could have been done without Mrs. 
Bell. For dependability, patience, tolerance and 
professional "know how", the organist stands se- 
cond to none, and without her the School would have 
difficulty in maintaining a choir of any kind. With 
Mrs. Bell at the organ it has been possible to at- 
tempt and achieve unusual results far beyond our 

expectations. And then, of course, we have Mrs. 
Brady, the lady behind the scenes who does such a 
marvellous job of seeing that vestments and boys 
are kept immaculate, Sunday by Sunday. Nothing is 
left behind, all is in order with Mrs. Brady at work. 
Without her, we would have a very difficult time 
indeed, and trips would be absolute disaster. 

Within the choir, the Librarians deserve a large 
vote of thanks. Packing and unpacking books and 
music, "sorting out" after a practice or service, 
and keeping our not inconsiderable music supply in 
good shape, is a time-consuming and thankless 
task. Fox and Davis performed this task admirably, 
with little, if any, direction from the Choirmaster. 
Music appeared at the right time and in the right 
place, there were no slip-ups or oversights. For a 
job well done, many thanks. 

And to all the choir, many thanks. You played 
on the biggest team in the School, you trained every 
week all year and were "on the spot" every week- 
end. No other group in the School has to maintain 
this pace; that you did, and that voluntarily, is some- 
thing you can be justifiably proud. 

To those of you who are leaving the School, an 
invitation to return and sing with us whenever you 
can; to those returning, a reminder that the next 
choir practice will be Friday, September 9th. To 
you all — thank you for a good year. 


Back-room at Liberal Headquarters. 


In 1963 a mock election was held in B.C.S. or- 
ganized by the Fifth Form Club in accordance with 
the Federal Election occuring at the time. The 
undertaking was so successful that the club under 
Andrew Fleming (Pres.)and John Phillips (V. Pres.) 
decided to try it again. 

The project was to be run in strict accordance 
with the Federal Election, and so Chief Electoral 
Officer Andrew Fleming put the school on the 
mailing list to receive all the necessary materials 
actually used in the preparation for Federal Voting. 
Five candidates were nominated at conventions 
and were as follows: 

Christopher Davis Liberal 

Philip Anido Conservative 

Stewart McConnell N.D.P. 

Brian Ander Social Credit 

Robert Charlton Creditiste 

The candidates and their campaign managers 
dug right in, and soon the school walls and cor- 
ridors were covered in party slogans, and pictures. 

At the polling station. 

Election officials Walker and Porteous 
enumerate Fleming and Phillips. 

During all this vigorous campaigning many Fifth 
Formers were hard at work behind the scenes. 
Enumerating all those eligible to vote were David 
Walker and Peter Porteous. The enumerators then 
composed a preliminary list of the voters made up 
of 255 boys and 41 masters, their wives, and staff. 

On November 1st there was a major debate at 
which were discussed certain topics such as 
"Should free university education beoffered to all." 
The polices of the parties were brought forth by 
the candidates as they debated about each of the 
four topics chosen. 

The revising agents; Stensrud, Lowery, Breakey, 
Saykaly, and Rasmussen then got to work and were 
given a week to finish their assignment. 

John Phillips was elected as Returning Officer, 
successor to P. Castonguay, son of. Nelson 
Castonguay, Canada's Chief Electoral Officer. 

Finally Voting Day, November 4th arrived and 
the boys, masters and wives all came to the polling 
station in the gym to vote. Everything was done as 
accurately as possible to a real polling station 
and Fifth Formers present were Derek Jessop, the 
Election Clerk; Grenville Jones, Peter Porteous, 
Robert Graham, and Philip Fowler, who were scrut- 
ineers; Peter Nares, Chief Constable and his 
fellow Policemen; and making sure all went well 
were Andrew Fleming and John Philips. 

Deputy Returning Officer Baker 
deposits a ballot. 

Mr. Campbell registers to vote. 











The votes were tabulated and counted and the 
results were as follows:

A special acknowledgement and thank you goes 
to Mr. Nelson Castonguay, Canada's Chief Electoral 
Officer, who took such a keen interest in the pro- 
ject, and to Mr. Alexis Troubetzkoy who did such 
a fine job in advising the Club in their undertaking.

CLAUDE HEFFLER reads an introduction 
before playing. 

For the second year in sucession, Jeunesse 
Musicale sent four different concern groups to the 
School- This year's offerings measured up well to 
those of last Year's 1964-1965 series, and provided 
once again fine listening pleasure, and a keen in- 
sight into the enlightened world of music. The 
performing artists provided both first class enter- 
tainment and a running commentary dealing with 
the history and techniques used in the various 
selections. In all, even those whose tastes were 
not in the classical line, found the evening a newly 
discovered pleasure in musical entertainment. 


The season began with the powerful yet soothing 
bassbaritone voice of Gaston Germain. This dedi- 
cated young man was well able to reach out and 
capture the hearts of everyone present when he 
first sang musical arias from the great opera masters 
like Vivaldi, Gunoud and Mozart, but when he set 
his great voice to more contemporary pieces like 
the negro spiritual, "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", 
and George Gershwin's "Old Man River", he was 
applauded by the very spirits of all his audience. 
The dynamic personality and sense of humour which 
he posessed on top of such a magnificent voice, 
left nothing more to be desired. The first concert 
was an all out success. 



The Brussels String Quintet appeated towards 
the end of the first term presenting a definitely 
very appro vable concert. The evening began with 
a selection of six French dances, from the sixteenth 
century, of which the author is unknown. The 
Musicians then performed two selections by more 
contemporary artists, (Papineau-Couture and Ibert). 
One would gather that the musicians to reach out 
to the younger generation ofthe audiencewith some- 
thing that they were far more likely to understand 
and experience, in that most of the pieces were 
written in the Twentieth Century. 


Mr. Heffler's versatility on the piano was quickly 
realized by all present at the concert. His se- 
lections ranged through a series of composers 
whose fame for difficult musical compositions was 
well known to almost all. (Bach, Debussy, Bartock) 
Perhaps his Crowning moment came though when he 
played Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" a piece 
well known and appreciated by every one. It was 
with this work that he was able to truly grasp the 
complete approval of his listeners. His running 
commentary, and demonstration of chords and tech 
mques ,n piano, completed once again another fine 


On a cold February evening, the Orford String 
Quartet presented a programme of classical music 
to a small group of boys in the B.CS. library. Two 
of the pieces played were of the baroque period, by 
Haydn and Mendelssohn; the last by Ravel was 
more contemporary. The small audience was in- 
troduced to both the mechanics and capabilities of 
the various instruments, and their individual im- 
portance of the group. In all, the music played and 
the knowledge gained thereof, provided a thoroughly 
enjoyable evening. 

Jeunesse Musicale must once again be com- 
plimented onyet another fine season's performances 
in the B.CS. gym. The musicians and their devout 
interests in presenting to youth the fresh and clear 
nature of the world of classical music for which 
they live, must above all be congratulated for both 
outstanding and beneficial displays of artistry in 
its truest form. Can there be any higher gift than 
the expression of human thoughts, that cannot be 
pronounced verbally, but rather through the power 
of creation, and that creation music, and that lan- 
guage which we call music received and understood 
by a captivated audience.

On November 22, the School was entertained by the Royal 
Canadian Navy Band of H.M.C.S. Stadaconna in Halifax. A 
program of light classical music was presented which was 
thoroughly enjoyed by all.

This was the second year during which Bishop's 
organized industrial tours to some of the many 
manufacruring cenrres of the Sherbrooke area. These 
trips were due largely to the efforts of Mr. 
Troubetzkoy, who organized the buses and warned 
the staff of the companies concerned. About thirty 
or forty boys took advantage of each of these trips. 


Shortly before this, the first of the tours, the 
Union Screen Plate Company joined a co-operative 
of four other firms. These companies represent the 
United States, Germany and Canada. To see the 
Lennoxville Branch of this co-operation we were 
divided into small groups and assigned guides. 


Domtar is one of the oldest pulp and paper mills 
in Canada. Countless forms of paper are manufac- 
tured at East Angus as is crude pulp sold to paper 
mills in the United States. 

Up until this trip I was led to believe that all 
the craftsmanship and dexterity of manufacture had 
been removed by machines. I was proved incorrect. 
The "wood shop" held man up as the mostimportant 
factor. In this shop men, with the standard wood- 
carving tools and with some reinforcement from 
basic power implements, form wood moulds, used 
to make sand forms from which the desired metal 
object is cast. I was amused to note that one of 
the ingredients used to make the sand forms was 
molasses. I assumed this was due to its adhesive 

I was also interested in the fact that only six 
volts are required for the electroplating carried out 
at the Union Screen. This is only two thirds of the 
voltage employed to run a transistor radio! However, 
the amperage is very high in plating. This is rather 
technical for the average non-physics student such 
as myself, but nevertheless I learned these and 
many other facts on this tour. For this reason I hope 
that this trip is continued on an annua] basis. 



Perhaps the most impressive feature of this tour 
was the effect of unimaginable power and vastness 
the entire system produced on us. I felt that a plant 
like this would be a fantastic background for a 
James Bond movie, since there were certainly one 
hundred and one ways to be killed or, in James' 
case, kill. An example of one of the many dangers 
is the "chipper", a machine which chews up four 
feet by two feet logs in under a second, and leaves 
only minute chips as evidence. 

We were given folders graphically representing 
the system used at Domtar to produce pulp and 
paper. This is far too complicated and lengthy to be 
explained at the moment. My only comment is that 
you should take this tour yourself.

The Christmas Holidays were hardly over, when 
the Fifth Form began the job of again sponsoring 
the Winter Carnival. Plans were made to enlarge the 
festivities, so as to include a dance with Compton. 
As soon as Miss Gillard consented to allow her top 
two forms to attend, plans went into full swing. 

The Broomball and Volleyball games were sche- 
duled to take place in the morning, so that the 
evening could be made more enjoyable for the 
visiting girls. A midway was skillfully planned and 
constructed in the gyrn by Tom Law and Steve 
Baker. Such games as Penny-Toss and Steeplechase 
were played and our thanks go to the Optimists Club 
for kindly letting us use some of their equipment. 
Although these games cater mainly to the younger 
generation, the adults seemed to walk away with 
all the glory. Mrs. Doheny had a big lucky strike at 
the Tennis Ball Toss, run by Mark Saykaly and 
Peter Porteous, and Col. Denison won a hit record 
as the door prize. 



The enthusiasm put in the sporting events was 
equal to, if not greater than, the merriment in the 
gym. The volleyball championship was played off 
in the morning and Chapman House managed to edge 
Smith House, to take the cup. The broomball cham- 
pionship played in the evening, was played also by 
smith and Chapman, but the Double crown was 
split, with Smith House winning. 

In the skating races, Grier House edged Williams 
House in the House Relay, to take that event. How- 
ever, Smith House monopolized the Senior events; 
Hughie Kent followed by Rick Howson in the 
Marathon and vice versa in the Speed race. Grier 
House pulled through, however, with John Eddy 
taking the Junior Speed. Williams House tried va- 
liantly to catch up, with Palmer winning the Junior 
Marathon, however the effrot was futile. 

The big surprise of the evening was the an- 
nouncement of the winner of the Snow Scuplture 
Contest. School House's "The Thinker" pulled 
through, much to the discomfort of a certain Samoi. 

The overall winner was Smith House, with Grier 
House 5 points behind. 

Between the midway and Dance, Veep Phillips 
and his crew, miraculously transformed the gym into 
a dance floor and the Fifth & Sixth finished off the 
day with a record hop. 

Although there were some strained moments the 
carnival went off very well and the Fifth Form 
'65-'66 would like to wish the Fifth Form '66-'67 
all the best if they undertake the carnival next year, 
as we hope they will. 

A. Fleming (Form V-A) 



Successful petitioning by the two senior forms 
obtained for the Dance Committee their first task of 
preparing a Record Hop with the Matric Form at 
Compton. The Dance Committee of Porteous, Dyer, 
Frank, Veillon, Kent and Eddy arranged for a bar- 
becue of hotdogs and corn-on-the-cob after the First 
Team football game. Afterwards, a dance along in- 
formal lines, took place in the Prep School Dining 
Hall. Neill, perched on a table flipped the discs 
for three hours while Mr. Read and his partner gave 
a few lessons in contemporary dancing. Sandwiches 
and punch added to an exciting evening of newly- 
made acquaintances and anticipation of the dance 
to come. 


Saturday evening, November 13th, the last of the 
red, white and blue streamers and finishing touches 
on the Paris Cafe theme were made and the majority 
of King's Hall and Bishop's met in pairs at the 
B.C.S. gym. Neill and Bovaird juggled records on 
a pair of turn tables on the front of the stage plat- 
form, maintaining a lively atmosphere in the gym. 
Refreshments were served in front of a mural which 
was drawn by Jones II and Collin with a rather 
different kind of refreshment in mind. I hope King's 
Hall enjoyed being our guests as much as we en- 
joyed being hosts. 

The Dance Committee rested peacefully during 
the second term. The Fifth Form sponsored a Car- 
nival Dance for the senior forms of both schools. 
Later in the term the girls from King's Hall were 
hostesses to Bishop's and Stanstead boys along 
with boys from various other schools. After the 
traditional pairing-off by height and Forms the girls 
lead us into the brilliantly decorated gymnasium 
bordered by drawing of a-go-go girls, no doubt mo- 
delled by Comtpon belles. The Formal was a 
complete success as it always is, and we hope — 
always will be. 

No one with pins allowed on the dance floor! 


The preparations for the final dance of the 
school year began late in the second term. Having 
profited from our past experience in organizing 
dances, the Dance Committee decided to achieve as 
much as possible before the week of the event. Sug- 
gestions for a band were tendered, counts were 
taken, a date was established (after many changes 
and new developments), and ideas for a theme were 
put forth. After the Easter holidays, more counts; 
train times, for girls coming from Montreal were 
checked; meetings and complications; brought us a 
week away from the dance with a great deal planned 
and discussed, but no action. Then the machine 
started rolling — Mr. Blue sacrificing his time to 
drive into Sherbrooke twice a day for decorations; 
Mrs. Brady rustling up table cloths and candles; Mr. 
Read sketching ideas for the theme, Mr. Doheny ar- 
ranging for residence forimported girls and generally 
giving the last word on everything. The Dance Com- 
mittee was actually doing something too along with 
many kind assistants. While Lawson drafted new 
boys, and Charlton translated orders for the car- 
penters, we began decorating -Frank putting up the 
"lighting" for the sitting-out room, Languedoc 
phoning the band, Dyer suddenly coming up with a 
new suggestion, Veillon figuring out ingenious ways 
to do all the decorating in half the time, Burbidge 
and the "boys" blowing balloons, Collin stealing 
paint and staplers for the murals from Mr. Evans' 
bottomless supply, Gibson and Bishop playing with 
the speakers and record players, Berwick and 
Ferguson doing the work nobody else had time to 
do and myself telling Porteous how to organize it 

Despite the avalanche of balloons and streamers 
and the many mishaps before Friday, the 29th, the 
dance was a happy return for the work of all con- 
cerned. The band was versatile, the dancers active, 
the talkers talkative, the eaters satisfied and the 
problems few.

Bishop's College School, as an institution, should 
promote ideas for future careers in the minds of the 
inmates. As B.C.S. is a private School, the students 
do not have much contact with everyday life. Vo- 
cational talks were introduced last year to remedy 
this lack of preparation in the hope that they might 
provoke people to think about their aspirations. 

Four men spoke to us on four different subjects; 
the Armed Forces, Medicine, Retailing and Adver- 
tising, and Export. Some, most people agree, were 
not as scintillating as one might expect; perhaps 
this was because of no real appeal to the people 

One of the first such talks was on the subject 
"Armed Forces". Captain Gervais spoke learnedly 
about the ROTC and ROTP. He described some of 
the aspects of military life, pay, housing, the future 
and the methods with which one could enter the 
Armed Forces. The three colleges, Royal Military 
College of Canada, Royal Roads, and College 
Militaire de Saint Jean, were looked at. To us the 
subject was not particularly inspiring, having tasted 
the life of a cadet here. 

Dr. J. Ross told the assembled senior forms 
about, curiously enough, various aspects of a career 
in medicine. The neat and hygienic appearance of 
many boys must have inspired him for he operated 
on his listeners and certainly sent some away with 
grandiose schemes of becoming expert doctors. 

A rather unusual talk was on retailing and ad- 
vertising, given by Mr. L. Rosenbloom. This was 
unusual because not many people think of those 
topics as careers, but more as jobs. However, Mr. 
Rosenbloom helped many people, I'm sure, see that 
careers are everywhere. They just need to be found. 



CAPT. GERVAIS thanked by Walker. 

OLD BOY P. DUFFIELD speaks on "Export as a 

Mr. P. Duffield, an old boy, produced the greatest 
effect on his listeners. He spoke for at least an 
hour more than he was asked to. Several pointed 
questions were directed to him, and the answers 
were all satisfactory. His dissertation included 
some interesting adventures that had befallen him 
while he was doing his job. He also demonstrated 
the facility of changing from a specialized field to 
another. This helped us a great deal, since we all 
wonder whether we make the right choice or not. 
Although we do not remember all he told us, with 
the help of charts and graphs, we understood his 
various points at the time. 

Those of us who were at all interested in our 
futures thank these men and Mr. Troubetzkoy, who 
helped make the talks possible.

The Old Boys of B.C.S. are noted for their long- 
lvity and some of sixty years' standing turned up 
at the Prizegiving on October 11th. 

Mr. Large began his second report with some 
interesting statistics. It appears that in our cosmo- 
politan student body are represented eight Canadian 
Provinces, eight States of the U.S.A., and thirteen 
other countries. 

To the past members of the faculty, Messrs. 
Pratt, Silver, and Young, the Headmaster wished 
good luck in their future studies. To the three new 
masters, Mr. Tim Callan, Mr. David Cruikshank and 
Mr. Donald Read, he extended a warm welcome. 

Having drawn attention to the School's con- 
tinued excellence in academic, athletic, and cadet 
activities, with special emphasis on the moving 
ceremony of the raising of the new flag, Mr. Large 
concluded his report, and turned the floor over to 
Dr. Preston. 

Anthony W. Preston, M.A., D.C.L., the Vice- 
Principal of Bishop's University, was the speaker 
and guest of honour. In his fascinating speech, he 
reminisced about the earlier days of the School, and 
its semi-legendary characters. With a tribute to the 
distaff side, he remembered the long-suffering 
ladies of the infirmary, the linen-room, and the 
office. He made special mention of four past Head- 
masters — S. Percy Smith, whose unflagging, 
half-century long love affair with the School only 
ended last year with his death; Crawford Grier, who 
nursed the School through the Dirty Thirties; Ogden 
Glass, the schoolboy who returned as Headmaster 
of his old School; and Fred Pattison, Headmaster 
from 1961 to 1964, who served for forty years. 

Finishing with an ever-popular request, Dr. 
Preston asked the Headmaster to grant the students 
a half-holiday, a request to which Mr. Large readily 
acceded. The prizes were then presented. 

PROF. A. W. PRESTON meets with 
prize-winners Patrick, Steele and 

Nicholas Miller won the Governor General's 
Medal for the highest Sixth Form average while 
Michael Patrick took the Old Boys' Prize 'for the 
best Senior Matriculation marks in the Seventh 

B.C.S. tankards were awarded to James Brunton 
and Michael Patrick, who obtained First Class 
Honours in their Junior and Senior Certificates 
Douglas Fox, George Gait and Peter janscn also 
won tankards for their outstanding services to the 
School during their careers as students.

The motto of the 4th Form Tribune reads: 
"Tardius Melior Quam Numquam" or loosely tran- 
slated, "Better late than never". We might well 
have used this same inscription on the cover of the 
1965 edition of B.C.S, Last year's Magazine did 
not come out in August as scheduled, nor did it 
come out in September, November or even February. 
Only on March 23, 1966 did the long-awaited dis- 
tribution take place. Although it is not our intention 
to do a post-mortem on the delays of '65, we take 
this opportunity to apologize profusely to our read- 
ers for our tardiness. 

This year's edition, we are confident, will appear 
on time as scheduled, and we feel it will prove to 
be one of the more successful ones of recent years. 

The Literary Section is perhaps the largest of 
any past edition, thanks to the vast numbers of 
really quite good submissions. We regret only that 
we do not have the space to print all the submitted 
works. The coverage of the year's activities like- 
wise has been thorough, and the photographic 
submissions plentiful. Once again we are indebted 
to Mr. Grimsdell for his many excellent photos, and 
to George Bibby, Robert Neill and others also go 
our thanks for photographic help. 

We wish to recognize especially the efforts of 
the Advertising Manager and his assistants who 
did an exceptional job in soliciting and organizing 
the Advertising Section of this edition. With the 
late arrival of the 1965 edition it was especially, 
difficult to build up this part of the book. Lastly, 
our thanks to Mr. Cowans, for his patience in 
reading pages and pages of galley proofs.

Probably the best way to begin this review is 
to admit at the outset to a fairly crippling pred- 
judice: I feel quite sincerely that Billy Budd, as 
it was produced here this year, is the best 'school 
play' I have seen. In view of this bias, it is only 
reasonable that I offer some reservations to balance 
this view, but first of all, let me justify this state- 
ment of approval. 

To begin with, the play is convenient, in that 
there are no female parts to be faked or imported. 
Then, it is a young man's play, because there is a 
quality of youth in seamen, that they retain even 
into old age: to have an old sailor played by a young 
man is less difficult to manage than to have ayoung 
man playing an old banker, for example. And it is 
a play that deals in universals that have occupied 
men's concern for themselves and each other since 
the dawn of morality. Good and evil, law and justice, 
are seen in the play to be as confused and inter- 
penetrated as they are in the lives of us all, and 
our actors here are developing a theme with an 
immediacy and familiarity to themselves and their 
audience that gives the play an initial advantage 
on both sides of the footlights. The script imposes 
an obligation on the actors, and at the same time 
shows clearly that the obligation is worth accepting. 
In short, it is a good play, and a good play to 
undertake in the special environment of a school 
like ours. 

The production this year had an excellently 
related proportioning of the parts to the whole. 
There is no single feature that succeeded or failed 
notably, so that I found no point at which my at- 
tention was caught by the set, the costumes or the 
effects, at the expense of my attention to the play 
itself. This, as far as I am concerned, is a very 
important matter, since after many seasons exposure 
to The Monkey's Paw and the like, it is very easy 
for me to begin wondering who measured the actors 
for their costumes, why they are all made up to look 
so sick, or if that is really a Wedgewood platter on 
the mantel. The physical setting, then, of the play, 
was exactly that: a case or frame to display the 
acting-out of an insoluble problem. 

The problem is of course insoluble, and the 
impact of the play depends on this being conveyed. 
The tragedy lies in the uncertainty of any man's 
knowledge of himself, and the impossibility of any 
man being able to understand either the motives or 
the consequences of his acts. The focus of this 
tragedy seems to me to lie in the character of 
Claggart; or perhaps one should say characters, 
since the lines given to the mate are diliberately 
arranged to show a tyrant, a poet, a spoiled moralist, 
a man corrupt and corrupting, full of vanity and 
self-hatred. There is no hope for him on earth, in 
heaven, or in hell, and his tragedy is that he knows 
that. This role is by no means simple, and Allan 

Smith interpreted it so that he left me with the un- 
comfortable sensation that he, like Billy, was a 
victim not unworthy of sympathy. 

All the parts, of course, have the same multiple 
quality, and we were reminded that purity is not of 
necessity an armament against disaster, and that 
innocence can make a man a focus of disaster. 
David Barry played Billy so that this dangerous 
potential was shown simply and clearly. Similarly, 
Nicholas Miller, as the Captain dispensing justice, 
showed himself unhappily conscious that only 
injustice could be done. 

The officers and crewmen in their interpretations 
were able to put together a representation of the 
sad little world of isolation the ship becomes; they 
are not flat, two-dimensional figures symbolic of 
good or evil, but believable, mixed in their motives, 
and confused in their acts, as we all are. 

My main reservation I have held until the end, 
since I have not been able to find the reason for it. 
While I am reasonably certain that most of the salty 
language in the play would not be unfamiliar, at 
least by hearsay, to most of the players, there 
seemed to be an awkwardness in delivering it in 
the authentic off-hand way that was required. Either 
the actors should have had more practice at 
swearing, or a lot of the 'rough talk' should have 
been smoothed down a bit.

On Saturday, April 30th, Bishop's College School, 
Lennoxville, was host to five other schools for an 
experimental 'Theatre Workshop'. This meant the 
non-competitive performance of a one-act play, or 
part of a longer play, by each School, and Mr. 
Howard Ryshpan, a B.C.S. Old Boy and most active 
professional actor, came to give constructive com- 
ment on the plays. Howard Ryshpan brought a wealth 
of professional acting and directing experience to 
the task. He has played in theatre, movies, TV, 
and radio, he is a frequent lead at Montreal's 
Instant Theatre, and is at present directing two 
plays for the new Barrel Theatre in Montreal. 

Mr. John Cowans of the B.C.S. Staff acted as 
general stage manager, and a small stage crew of 
B.C.S. boys was ready to give the stage managers 
of the various troupes what they needed for their 

At 3 p.m. Mr. Lewis Evans welcomed Mr. Ryshpan 
and the various participants, and the first play, an 
excerpt from T. S. Eliot's 'Murder in the Cathedral', 
performed by B.C.S., got under way. This was 
followed by two scenes from Shakespeare's 'The 
Tempest', acted by students of Knowlton High 

School, and then came two acts of the comedy 'Not 
in the Book' by Arthur Watkyn, played by Stanstead 

Mr. Ryshpan then commented on the work done 
in the first three plays, stressing the need for more 
observance of the fundamentals of acting in both 
action and speech. 

A buffet supper followed for all concerned, and 
at 7.30 the plays resumed. The first was J.M. 
Synge's 'Riders to the Sea' performed by girls of 
King's Hall, Compton; the second was 'A Fabulous 
Tale' by R.F. Stockton, the vehicle for Lower 
Canada College's troupe, and the third was Anton 
Chekov's 'Marriage Proposal' acted by students of 
St. George's School of Montreal. 

Mr. Ryshpan then commented on the last three 
plays, pointing out many characteristics that had 
appeared to him as good or bad, and adding much 
general instruction on the principles of acting. He 
and the host school were then thanked by Mr. Brian 
Powell, Assistant Headmaster of Lower Canada 

It is planned to make this 'Workshop' a yearly 
event, to take place in different schools in turn. 



In its first year of operation, the Mathematics 
Club asked its members, twenty-five in all, to turn 
their attention to the contemporary phenomenon of 
computers. The history and basic concepts of cal- 
culating machines were studied first in order to 
provide a basis for the practical part of the invest- 
igation — a study of the art of programing. (Note: 
'programing' is not here mis-spelled; The American 
Federation of Information Processing Societies has 
decreed that this be the standard spelling. We 
acquiesce.) With the aid of manuals purchased from 
IBM, the club members learned the elements of 
FORTRAN, the most-used computer language, wrote 
some programs, and became acquainted with the 
rudiments of machine operation. 

The highlight of this phase of the Club's oper- 
ations came when members visited the IBM 1620 
installation at Bishop's University. Through the 
kind cooperation of Dr. W. McCubbin, Dean of 
Science, and Mr. F.R. Pattison, formerly Headmaster 
of B.C.S., now teaching some mathematics at the 
University, it was possible for the members to see 
the computer in operation and even have some of 
their own programs run off.

The members of this year's club have donated 
eleven IBM 1620 FORTRAN Manuals for the use of 
future Club members, and it is planned that an in- 
troduction to computers will be a standard part of 
the induction of new members. 

The Mathematics Team again participated in the 
International High School Contest sponsored by the 
Mathematical Association of America, the Society 
of Actuaries, and Mti Alpha Theta, the North 
American Association of High School Mathematics 
Clubs. This year, the purely Quebec contest spon- 
sored by the Canadian Mathematical Congress was 
held at the same time as the International Contest,

Agora had a reasonably good, if slightly unusual, 
year in 1965-66. The first debate, on the question 
of fighting for God, Queen, and country, actually 
took place before Agora had any officers. A short 
time later, last years returning members met to 
nominate and elect the officers of the year; Gaston 
Jorre was elected President, Chris Davis Vice- 
President, and Bruce Pelletier Secretary. 

Those who came to the discussion on South East 
Asia during the first term, will probably all agree 
that it was the most interesting Sunday night 
meeting held. We were briefed on some of the major 
aspects of the area by Grenville Jones, Michael 
Skutesky, and also Ian Webster who gave us a very 
enlightening talk on Cambodia, where his home 
has been for over a year; this was followed by a 
protracted discussion centered largely on Cambodia. 
Among the efforts directed at lower forms were de- 
bates on the expansion of the National Hockey 
League, and the merits of Modern Culture versus 
Classical Culture. 

Perhaps the most dynamic undertaking of the 
year at School, was the Inter-House Debating Tour- 
nament; each senior house sentfour representatives 
(two affirmative, and two negative) to debate on the 
topic "Armed aggression is an effective instrument 

of state policy." Each affirmative and negative 
team debated against the opposite teams of the 
three other houses. With four debates going on at 
once, it took only three rounds of about one hour 
each' to find the finalists; both Grier House teams 
emerged after three straight victories to battle each 
other for the championship in which the negative 
team of Chris Davis and Gaston Jorre, won over the 
affirmative team of Robert Charlton and James Duff. 
The tournament was effective in its objective of 
initiating sixteen people to the rigors of a debating 
tournament. Its second objective was to prepare 
our team for the McGill Tournament, whose topic 
we used. It remains only to thank again Messrs. 
Large, Patriquin, Greer, and Callan for their do- 
nation of a Sunday afternoon to judge the debates, 
and give valuable critiques. 

The next weekend was that of the McGill 
University High School tournament, where Agora 
was represented for the second time. The teams of 
Gaston Jorre and Bruce McNaughton (negative), 
and of Chris Davis and James Duff did well; both 
of our teams debated against four other schools, (out 
of 50) winning 5 out of 8 debates which represents 
a substantia] improvement over the previous year. 
All four members will long remember having finished 
debating on the first day, at about midnight. The

next day had two more rounds, the speaking cont 
test, the final, and the distribution of prizes. Each 
participant in the impromptu speaking contest had 
5 minutes to prepare a 5 minute speech on an as- 
signed topic; Jorre represented the School speaking 
on mass media. The tournament introduced us to the 
technique of cross examination of all speakers 
except the rebutalists, which we now hope to intro- 
duce into School debates. Out of the 200 debaters 
present, Gaston Jorre was named as one of the 
three runner-ups for best speaker in the debating. 
Agora was also represented at the smaller and 
shorter Bishop's University tournament; speaking 
affirmative to '"Resolved that capital punishment 
be maintained", were James Duff and Steve Baker. 
Chris Davis and Gaston Jorre opposed the reso- 
lution during the three rounds. Both of these 
tournaments help the quality of our debating by 
often putting our teams against top-notch opponents. 

Robett Graham (succeeding his brother by two 
years), went to the Plymouth New Hampshire model, 
United Nations under the sponsorship of the Rotary 
Club. Graham went down to the assembly held at 
a state teachers college, to act as the Canadian 
representative on the model committee on Apartheid. 
Gaston Jorre represented the Agora at the Sherbrooke 
Rotary Club public speaking contest, by speaking 
on "the need for new leadership in Canada." 

Trinity College School invited us to take part 
in their debating tournament for the first time, and 
James Duff led Andrew Fleming and Bill Stensrud 
to Port Hope. T.C.S. has a very different style of 
debate which was rapidly adopted by our team 
which had to debate once as Her Majesty's 
Government and once as Her Majesty's Loyal 
Opposition on resolved, "Canada should send 
troops to Viet Nam." All members of the team re- 
turned with a very favorable impression of T.C.S. 
It is to be hoped that Agora may someday be in a 
position to invite some of their debaters here. The 
highpoint for Agora however was James Duff's 
winning of the speaking contest by a speech on 

Chris Davis acted both as organizer and speaker 
of the Model Parliament held in place of last year's 
model U.N. Held in the third term, the model par- 
liament had a minority liberal government with 
Burbidge as Prime Minister, Charlton as conser- 
vative leader, and McConnel as leader of the New 
Democratic Party. The topic of capital punishment 
was chosen and treated along non-partisan lines, 
thus giving the 40 members an opportunity to state 
their views. Of five very different resolutions pre- 
sented the members, in a characteristic political 
move, compromised on Messrs. Fleming andWalker's 
bill calling for abolition, except for the murder of a 
policeman or prison guard, a move slightly farther 
than that of the real Parliament. 

Agora awarded a tie to Mr. Greer in recognition 
of the help he has provided this year and in pre- 
vious years. Honorable mentions go to: S. Baker, 
R. Charlton, R. Graham, B. Stensrud, I. Webster.

Dear Doug, 

We formed the Glee Club for the third successive 
year in the opening weeks of the first term. Fairly 
regular practices were held in St. Martin's Chapel, 
the S.R.A. room and on the stage. The Club con- 
sisted of eleven competent members including seven 
"new-boys"; Keith MacLellan, Nick Miller, John 
Burbidge, Peter Rider, Gib Drury, Peter Goldberg 
and Chris Davis. The returning members; Tim Jones, 
Robin and Danny Montano, and myself, urged the 
Club on with the valuable experience gained last 

We were once again fortunate in having two ex- 
perienced guitarists in the Montano brothers. They 
helped the Club in its successful proformance as 
they had in previous years. 

Unfortunately we were unable to perform in the 
first term but under the excellent direction of Mr. 
Cruickshank, the Choirmaster, we were able to pre- 
pare a program of musical entertainment for the 
Formal at King's Hall. 

All our hopes of success go on to next year's 

Yours sincerely, 
Tom Janson, 
President 1965-66 


The library this year underwent some notably 
progressive changes. A special library committee 
composed of masters, each representing a particular 
department, was set up under the supervision of 
Mr. R.Owen. After several meetings, the library was 
converted to a more studious atmosphere. 

Mrs. Guest acted as head librarian for a large 
part of the first term. She put in much time to 
change the old system of book catagories to the 
efficient Dewey decimal system. Mrs. Guest was 
succeeded by the industrious Mrs. Patriquin, who 
exerted a great effort to keep the efficiency of the 
library at a maximum for the remainder of the school 

Many new books were purchased, especially in 
the mathematics department. The selection of mag- 
azines was greatly increased by Mrs. Patriquin to 
include almost all magazines to the interests of the 

The major changes were the construction of 
carrels on the tables to improve studying con- 
ditions; new magazine racks; the removal of the 
chesterfields from the main room and the conversion 
of the end room into a magazine room, suitable for 
relaxation while reading the daily papers provided, 
papers provided. 

C. Davis, J. LeNormand, S. Fox, A. MacLeod. 


The Stamp Club this year was very successful, 
and we had a good deal of interest put into it. 
Stuart McConnell was President this year, and John 
Nicholl was Secretary-President. Both these people 
put a lot of work into the Club, but we must not 
forget Mr. Robert Bedard, our Honorary President. 
He spent a deal of time and patience on the Club, 
and organized it extremely well. We had an ex- 
hibition in the second term, which was very well 
presented, and visited by many fellow students. 

The Club met every Sunday night after supper 
in Grier House, and had an auction every month. 
People were able to start new collections of coun- 
tries, and many others were aided in expanding 
their collections at these meetings. All in all the 
Club was a great success, and I hope that next year 
it will carry on.

The second term was well under way when the 
idea of a school newspaper was promoted. Mr. 
Troubetzkoy started the idea and many Fourth 
formers were interested and willing to start the 
newspaper. After many meetings a plan was for- 
mulated and a name for the newspaper was 
suggested and accepted. The newspaper was to be 
called the "Tribune." 

Dyer II, Dunlop, Carmichael, Duclos, Eddy III, 
Tisshaw, and Palmer put out a first issue of two 
pages by themselves just to see if the School 
accepted it. It was liked and a bigger second issue 
was put out with the whole of the Fourth Form 

Three issues were published in the second term, 
and more would have been made had not exam time 
come up, and the Tribune stopped two weeks before 
these dreaded things so that the Tribune reporters 
and editors could do some studying. 

In the third term the Tribune was published after 
a few weeks and although enthusiasm for the news- 
paper had died down, it still had enough supporters 
to have good articles written for it and new ideas 

The Tribune could not have come out this year 
had it not been for the help of Mr. Large, the or- 
ganization and advice of Mr. Troubetzkoy and the 
kind assistance of Mrs. Morrison, who did all the 
typing for the newspaper. Every boy who helped 
with the Tribune is very grateful to them. 

It was debated whether this year's Fourth Form 
should bring the newspaper on to the Fifth Form, 
but it was thought best to leave the Tribune as a 
Fourth Form project and let nextyear's Fourth Form 
handle the newspaper.

On November 28th of this year, the School hosted 
Mr. Cleveland Grant, a noted wildlife photographer 
from Wisconsin. Mr. Grant is an expert in his field. 
He has compiled films for Walt Disney and has tra- 
velled to the ends of the earth making film strips 
for his varying other lecrures. The presentation seen 
by the School was entitled "Land of Early Aurumn." 
Its theme was the animals and the birds found from 
the Wisconsin swamps to the heights of Alaska. 

Admittedly, few boys walked into the gym ex- 
pecting an entertaining ninety minutes. Half way 
through nearly everybody was surprised to find that 
he was enjoying himself. When the film came to a 
close everybody was disappointed. Mr. Grant ought 
to be highly commended for his success in raising 
the enthusiasm of the boys in a lecture ofthis type. 

Candid shots of screaming ducks, female se- 
ducing grouse, snorting buffalo, and sure footed 
mountain goats drew wide smiles from the very at- 
tentive audience. The speaker was quite a humorist 
himself, and had a talent for making mother nature 
interesting. Even those who had a bitter anathema 
for science could find no feasible criticism with 
which to complain. 

The camera fiends were shown how the pro- 
fessionals do it. Mr. Grant demonstrated ho'w he 
stalked, with tedious care, Mountain goat and elk 
in the Canadian Rockies and what long hours he 
spent a frustration awaiting a peculiar scarlet tan- 
ager. He communicated to all his enthusiasm for 
nature and his appreciation for beautiful scenery. 

Speakers with the talent of Mr. Grant will al- 
ways be appreciated here at School. It is a shame 
that they are so few and far between.

At 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 15th, Mr. Large, 
Mr. Troubetzkoy,K. MacLellan, A. Harpur, J. Walker, 
G. Clarke, R. Vie ts and J. Mundy set out for St. 
Benoit du lac. 

When we arrived we were immediately impressed 
by the setting of the Monastery. Mount Owl's Head 
and Lake Memphramagog in the background and the 
typical rolling landscape of Appalachian Canada 
in the foreground, were amplified by the beauty of 
the day itself. 

We entered the temporary church (the real one is 
still under construction) and watched the monks per- 
forming High Mass. The monks were dressed in 
black, and the priests in white. Each time the monks 
prayed, they stood bent perpendicular at the waist. 
The service was partly in Latin and partly in 
French. For the most part, I couldn't understand 

After this we ushered into the dining building. 
First we were introduced to the Abbot and then as 
we entered the dining hall, the Abbot washed our 
hands for us. We took our seats at the only table 
with a table cloth and china plates. All the monks 
were seated at bare tables with only plastic bowls, 
and glasses along with other eating utensils, again 
showing their humbleness to us. 

There was only one monk that talked while every- 
one else ate in silence. He told in French the 
history of the church. The meal was very well 
cooked, and it was served beautifully. 

After lunch we made our way up to the main 
doors of the monastery guest house, where our tour 
of the buildings began. Most of the buildings are 
already finished, but there are some parts that are 
still being worked on. The exterior is made of 
roughly cut blocks of marble and granite. The ce- 

ment between the blocks is painted different colours 
over doors and windows, which breaks the monotony 
of the grey marble. 

On the inside, the brickwork of the walls and 
floors are patterns of mosaic which brighten up the 
otherwise gloomy interior. There are several cloi- 
sters in the buildings that are brightly lit and are 
used for liturgy processions and places for medi- 
tation. The temporary chapel will be used as a 
dining hall when the new one is finished. There is 
also a temporary church while the permanent church 
is being built. Both of these churches have low 
roofs and look very much different from the ones you 
see normally. 

In the basement there is a very large printing 
shop where the monks make Christmas cards and 
church pamphlets. At one end of the building is a 
large round room, where the monks take their vows 
and become members of the Order. Just outside this 
room is the spiral staircase. It rises up 8 or 9 floors 
and at each floor a long corridor stretches out, 
joining the rooms and studies of the monks. From 
the top of this staircase looking down, it is green 
and from the bottom it is blue. This is because 
certain parts seen from the top and not the bottom, 
are green instead of blue. It presents a very inter- 
esting optical illusion when looked at. 

In their small store they sell cards, ceramics, 
carvings and cheeses, all of which they make, 

The monks established their own community in 
which very little contact is made with the sur- 
rounding communities and they will go on living in 
this way for many long years.

At the University of Sherbrooke on Saturday, 
April 16th, 1966, the Richelieu Rotary Clubs held 
their Fourth Annual Science Fair. Unfortunately, it 
was only of partial success. While the quality of 
material presented was high, the number of projects 
was disappointingly low. Although sixteen exhibits 
were scheduled, only eight arrived. B-C.S. was re- 
presented by David Barry, John Thorpe and Peter 
Ksiezopolski, while competition came from 
Sherbrooke, LeBer, and Sutton High Schools. 

Prizes were awarded to the best four projects 
and honorable mentions were given for originality. 
First place was awarded to Steven Dufresne for his 
exhibit on seismology. Winning for the fourth time, 
Steve displayed showmanship as well as scientific 
ability in building a functioning seismograph 
knowing only the principles on which it is based. 
Mireille Turcotte won second prize with her "Expe- 
rience Dietetique." In many precise readings, she 
had compared on a protein deficient diet, that she 
had designed herself, with normal rats. Third place 
was a draw between Lewis Heillig and Francine 
Dumas. Lewis had taken the schematic diagram for 
a computer and built an operating digital type. He. 

had also designed a component of it to win at tic- 
tac-toe. Francine demonstrated the different aspects 
embryology assumes in various mammals. She 
supported her arguments with embryos that she 
herself had dissected. 

It is evident from the winners' list that a great 
deal of work is represented. It should therefore be 
emphasized that anyone thinking of entering next 
year's fair should begin NOW. The standard of 
quality is much higher than that achieved in two 
or three weeks. But anyone who has any interest at 
all in some facet of science, should not hesitate to 
throw his hat into the proverbial ring by entering. 
No one who has ever been in a science fair can 
possibly dismiss the work as too much trouble. A 
good project will receive recognition as well as 
remunerative gains which will more than make the 
effort worth it. First and Second places represent 
Sherbrooke in the Canada wide Science Fair in 
Windsor, Ontario, a coveted prize which provides 
an excellent incentive to anyone. Although exhibits 
do not always win, the experience is a valuable 
personal gain.

Cadet Training 

A roll of 208 boys was taken on the 2nd day of 
School, on the Soccer field. This roll marked the 
beginning or continuation of the military life of 
every boy at B.CS. An inspiring speech concerning 
life in the corps was delivered by the Chief Instruc- 
tor, 'Major Abbott, and then promotions were 
announced. The training cadre was chosen and 
consisted of one veteran, Staff Sergeant N. Miller 
and eleven corporals later to be promoted to 

The syllabus for the first two terms, consisted 
of the usual cadet parade every Thursday, in which 
every cadet was lectured and drilled. This year the 
optional subjects for the lectures were First Aid, 
Map Using, National Survival, Hunter Safety, Field- 
craft, Range Courses and Corps Indoctrination. The 
drill was handled by two drill experts, Sergeant 
Major Kent and his Staff Sergeant Skutezky, and 
supervised by Lieutenant Read. There was little 
other change in the weekly routine, but the corps 
participated in many outside activities. After the 
yearly chapel service on Remembrance Day, an 
Honor Guard marched to Lennoxville for a ceremony. 
The range was active as usual, sending a rifle 
team to Montreal, having every cadet shoot, and 
participation in the Youth of the Empire Shoot. At 
the end of the second term, the Annual Cadet Exams 
were held. These exams will always be remembered 
as being very gruelling and difficult. However, 
seventy percent of the Corps passed, and many 
cadets received promotions. 

The First Aid Exams were written a week later 
and 60 out of 75 cadets succeeded in obtaining a 
certificate. The Master Cadets Exams were also 
given on that week, and 12 out of 14 cadets won 
their master cadet. 

Warm weather and the third term brought the 
cadets outdoors for route-marches up to the top of 
Moulton Hill and for ceremonial drill on centre 
field. After supper on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 
the various demonstrations for the final inspection 
were prepared. There was the precision drill squad 
under Sergeant Major Kent and Lieutenant Read, 
the band under Warrant Officer 2nd Class Janson, 
First Aid and Fieldcraft demonstrations trained by 
Chief Instructors, Lieutenant Clifton and Colonel 
Denison respectively. 

On the week of the inspection, the whole Corps 
shaped up and strove towards perfection. The minor 
kinks were ironed out, and the cadets began to take 
pride in themselves, their uniforms, and the Corps. 
This morale boost resulted in a successful in- 
spection which, once again, brought distinction 
and praise to the oldest cadet Corps in Canada. 

Later on in the term, the Guard had the honor to 
parade in the Annual Montreal Church Parade with 
its affiliated unit, the Black Watch; with this final 
parade, another successful year in the history of 
the Corps was completed.

This year, for the first time in five years, the 
weatherman won his annual battle with the Cadet 
Corps. The weather that he sent on Friday, May 13th, 
was certainly designed to dispel any doubts that 
such a date is unlucky; it rained and snowed alter- 
nately in the morning and early afternoon, and then, 
just out of spite the sun came out about three 
o'clock and the evening was beautiful. As a resort 
of this uncooperativeness, the Corps was trans- 
ported by bus to the armoury of the "Fusiliers de 

After the Sergeant-Major had fallen the Com- 
pany in, he turned it over to the 2 i/c, who, in turn, 
marched the officers on before handling the Com- 
pany over to the C.O.; the C.O. marched on the 
Colours and then there was a general salute to the 
reviewing officer as he took his place on the re- 
viewing stand. The Corps was at this point 
inspected by Lieut. Col. T.E. Price, CD., an Old 
Boy of the School, who is presently commanding 
the Third Battalion of the Black Watch (R.H.R.) of 
Canada. After the inspection the C.O. requested, 
and was given permission to carry on with the rest 
of the Annual Inspection procedure. This consisted 
of two marchpasts — in column of route and in close 
column of platoons (the third marchpast, in line, 
was prohibited by the lack of space); the march- 
pasts were followed by three demonstrations: the 
Precision Drill Squad, under C.S.M. Kent, which 
performed various rifle and marching movements, 
including an old musket drill movement which was 
very effective; the Drill Squad was succeeded by a 
First Aid demonstration, under Lieut. J.F.G. Clifton, 
which showed how to treat various injuries incurred 
in a riot — this was very popular with the spectators 
who felt the "fighting" was extremely realistic; the

third demonstration was put on by the Band, under 
the supervision of Staff Sgt. MacNaughton; the high- 
light of its performance was the "Echo", a very 
difficult piece to play. During these demonstrations 
the Company was under the command of the 2 i/c 
who, on their completion, marched the Company back 
into position in front of the reviewing stand and 
returned the command to the CO., who had joined 
Lieut. Col. Price for the demonstrations. 

Lieut. Col. Price now presented the Best Recruit 
Medal to Cadet S. Chiang, the Best Cadet Medal to 
Cpl. R. Carmichael; the Most Efficient N.C.O. Medal 
to Sgt. D. Montano, and the Best Instructor prize 
(the Black Watch skean-dhu) to Staff Sgt. N. Miller. 
The G.W. Hess Memorial Trophy, for the winner of 
the interplatoon shooting competition went to No. 1 
Platoon, under Lieut. B. Sutton; the Harold Anderson 
Scott Memorial Cup, for the winner of the interpla- 
toon competition was won by No. 2 Platoon, under 
Lieut. G. Clubb. The Shield for Corps Initiative and 
Smartness was won jointly by the Band and the 
Precision Squad. The Master Cadets were also pre- 
sented with their stars by Lieut. Col. Price 
Finally, Capt. Savard, the Area Cadet Training 
Officer, presented the Strathcona Trust Medal, for 
the Best Cadet Irrespective of Rank, to Major 
Cobbett. Lieut. Col. Price made a short speech 
after the presentation of awards, in which he said 
that he hoped some of the Cadets on parade would 
join either the Militia or the Regulars, and he also 
asked the Headmaster to grant the School a half- 
holiday. The Corps responded with three cheers for 
the reviewing officer. The Company marched eight 
paces in slow time with an automatic halt A final 
general salute was given as the inspecting party 
.eft the drill floor and the Corps was dismissed

The year began auspiciously for the green. Old 
boys and new boys returned to freshly waxed floors, 
a new green linoleum floor at the boys' entrance, 
and new green blankets on the beds. Tans faded 
into an autumn of cold, wet weather. Kent and 
Howson felt out their positions as House Officers, 
while the new boys adjusted to the routine: up by 
7:15, out by 7:19:59, back for prep at 7:29, break 
at 7: 35 (late as usual), in bed by 10: 15 (with clothes 
on), and finally in pajamas and asleep by 10:30. 
The routine differed somewhat for six-formers in 
that they talked until 11:00. 

Two days before the Thanksgiving weekend, the 
abode receievd a new green rug on the first floor 
and the stairs. A jealous second floor was consoled 
only because the first floor creaked just as much 
as ever. The cross-country approached all too soon, 
bringing with it rain, cold weather, and snow, which 
remained until a few days before the race. We 
shunned the idea of practising for the ordeal, and 
consequently came third in the house competition. 
The team consisted of Howson, Martin-Smith, Fisher, 
Carmichael, and myself. 

There were eight members of First Team Football 
in the house: Kent (Assistant-Captain), McNaughtori; 
Clubb, Waite, Molson, Shortreed, Houghton (Manager) 
and myself. Although Clubb was put out for the sea- 
son because of a broken finger, the scoring lead he 
attained in the first two games remained unsur- 
passed. Barry and Brickenden supported the First 
Soccer Team. 

After the long weekend, the remaining weeks 
until the end of term flashed by, leaving many un- 
prepared for the Christmas exams. However Thorpe 
a 'Smith-houser', is the leading scholar in the 
School We were honoured to have Kent appointed a 
Head Boy at the Closing Assembly. 

• Th / ^ hri f tmas Pa »y. organized by Baker, con- 
s 1S ted of a hearty meal, some good skits, a hockey 
series, and T . V And so, with full stomachs and 
good spirits, we left for Christmas Vacation. 



The sleeping domicile awoke three woeks later 
to the noise of blaring record-players and bodies 
overladen with skis, skates, and sticks. An ex- 
amination of the Christmas results prompted Mr. 
Owen to make a new law: all those under sixty-five 
percent to do prep during quiet periods. The house 
supplied Kent (Captain), Howson, Clubb, Stewart, 
and Waite to the First Hockey Team. Clubb, plagued 
by injuries during the football season and over the 
Christmas vacation, wound up a short season with 
a broken ankle and leg. We provided both First Team 
goalies (Waite and Stewart), the Abenaki goalie 
(Read), the Mohawk goalie (Clark), and the Algon- 
quin goalie (Tisshaw). Molson and McNaughton were 
on the Senior Ski Team. 

The Winter Carnival brought us to life. Work on 
the snow sculpture was begun by several members 
of the house, and continued on determinedly by 
Shortreed, Houghton, and Brooks. The six-formers 
made the occasional comment on inspection tours 
to bolster the spirit of the workers. When 'Dino, the 
Dinosaur' failed to even place in the judging, we 
were surprised, and the workers were mortified. 
However, we picked up six points in Volleyball and 
Broomball, and eight points each from Howson and 
Kent in the skate races, to win the overall com- 
petition by six points. 

The end of term approached with its usual 
rapidity. At this time we ran into some scientific 
difficulties. Thompson tried burning gunpowder on 
his windowsill, while Clark did his best to start 
an electrical fire in his room. Near the end of the 
examinations, we were beset by power failures. 
Newbury's emersion heater accounted for the first 
fuse, and caused a confiscation of all emersion 
heaters. The following night found people studying 
in the halls, a diligent Mr. Greer replaced one fuse 
after another. 

The Closing Assembly was a memorable oc- 
casion. Howson was presented the Wiggett Trophy 
for his efforts in hockey and was made a Head Boy. 
Molson won the Senior Whittall Cup for the best all 
round skier. Exams were finished, a quiet party took 
place, and the inhabitants left for two weeks of 
spring skiing or of visiting lands to the south. 



A tanned crowd, with sun-bleached hair, was 
welcomed back by Mr. Owen for the third term. It 
was made sufficiently clear to all, that the term was 
short and that studies must be kept up to par. 
McNaughton took over the job of assigning 'B.Q.' 
duty to fourth and fifth formers. The weather was 
sunny, but not warm enough for our dedicated group 
of sunbathers, during the month of April. 

Ander provided some excitement early in the 
term, for the local police, by taking a rusted .22, 
which Rasmussen had just found, and accidentally 
firing a shot into a nearby tree. 

1st Term Miners and Baker put the press in the 
basement to good use, by printing the political 
pamphlets for the mock election. We wish to thank 
Mr. Greer for taking Boys' Bank and for his hos- 
pitality to conversationalists and T.V. fans 
throughout the year. The playoffs found us in Mr. 
Owen's living-room again; Kent, Waite and 
Shortreed cheered for the doomed Black Hawks, 
and the rest, with some exceptions, cheered for Les 
Canadiens. Mr. Owen supplied transportation every 
morning, saving many of us the trouble of explaining 
why we were late to the M.O.D. On Sundays he 
permitted us to sleep in and have a good breakfast'. 
For all this, we thank Mr. Owen. 

At this point, we are planning a determined 
effort to capture the Senior House relay. Smith 
House found a replacement for 'Sylph', who left last 
year. 'Willnot' belongs to Thompson and is a member 
of the feline Clan. The fourth and fifth formers leave 
in four weeks. Those writing matrics will not leave 
until later in June.

The House Year 

This year, just like every other year, third and 
fourth formers in School House are debating about 
what House they want to be in — as if they had any 
choice. This year, just as in past years, Williams 
House was first choice for everybody. 

"What House did you say' you wanted to be in, 
again? " 

"Williams of course, that's sort of obvious." 

"I don't think so. Just 'cause it has got four of 
the best School Officers doesn't make it the best." 

"Yes, but just look at the House itself. It's got 
the best spirit and by far the best guys in it. No 
factory rejects like the other Houses. It must be 
a terrific hack with Pelletier and Montano as House 
Officers. They say that Montano I " 

"Who's he? I forget." 

"You know — the big guy in sixth form. He rooms 
with Blackader — 'that eternal weed." 

"Ya, and Pelletier is the nut who bounces all 
the time. " 

"Anyway, they say that Montano, who after two 
good terms in sixth form was promoted to Willy 
House Officer before Easter, is really fair and never 
greases around." 

"So! Pelletier never does and Sutton and Mc- 
Connell sure don't." 

"Williams House has got the best fourth and 
fifth formers. The only thing new boys have to worry 
about is Bar-B-Q duty and that isn't much of a 

"No, the thing that I really like about Willy is 
its size. This yeat it has only twenty-eight guys in 
it and there is lots of room." 

"Have you ever been inside?" 

"No. What's it like?" 

"It's really neat and comfortable. They got the 
new beds in this year, which are really good. And 
you should see Pelletier's and Rubin's room - I 
swear they must have over 100 Sports Illustrated 
pictures on the wall." 


"Apart from all that. Willy has a habit of winning 
the Cross Country Shield. This year, led by Charlie 
Blackader they won it for the third consecutive 

"Yea, but what happened in the Winter Carnival 
and Snow Sculpture contest?" 

"It must have been a bad day I guess." 

"But you have to remember that the most im- 
portant individuals in any House are the House 
Masters. This is Mr. Campbell's fifth year and he 
is already a tradition. They say he is always willing 
to give a helping hand and a listening ear. He leads 
the House in all activities and it just wouldn't be 
the same without him. This is Mr. Read's first year 
as Assistant House Master and the word is that he 
is doing a great job. You know he comes from B.U., 
just as Mr. Milligan did." 

"From what I hear, Mrs. Campbell should win 
the North American Cooking Prize. The Cross 
Country Party wouldn't have been the same without 
that fantastic meal." 

"You know Willy really pulled through in the 
first term. They had some Compton girls over for a 
Bar-B-Q before the Sixth Form Dance." 

"Is that right! It must have been a riot!" 

"Hum. ... ah Who are the Willy House Head 

Boys ? 

"Well, there is McConnell and Sutton in School 
House there is Lawson and MacLellan." 

"Do you realize that MacLellan is the only 
Seventh Former in the House? Next year with most 
everybody coming back it sh'ould be fantastic." 

"Oh well! It was nice dreaming of it! I flunked 
General Science so my chances of getting in 
Williams House are nearly zero."

As the hot summer months creep upon us, every 
Bishop's boy visualizes the approaching summer 
and the past year runs in review through his mind. 
There are nineteen boys, fortunate Chapman House 
boys, who can think about the past year with a good 
deal of exuberance and general good feeling. 

September jumped out of the dying days of 
August and before anyone realized it, we were all 
back in the barn. There were several new faces but 
a great many of last year's crew were back for 
another crack at it. Robert Appleton, Blair Barwick, 
Terence Bovaird, Charles Collin, Brian Duclos, 
Peter Boxer, and later in the year, Gordon MacCarthy 
joined our ranks as new boys. I must add that in the 
second term, we all felt the disastrous loss of 
Stephen Jones. We extend a good luck wish to him . 
Nick Miller and Gib Drury were appointed as down- 
stairs officers, while Graham (Gront) McOuat was 
the upstairs officer. 

Inter-house activities and competitions showed 
Chapman House as a competitor and real threat 
against the larger houses. Timothy Bradley ran a 
superb cross country race to cop that crown; Boxer, 
Anido and MacLeod were our other strong men. The 
winter carnival proved a huge success as we swept 
the volleyball and broomball championships (but 
were robbed in the snow sculpture!) 

In the debating competitions our two teams of 
Miller and Drury, Frank I and Boxer displayed ex- 
cellent talent, but failed to win any valuable points. 

We have the nucleus of an excellent relay team 
with Porteous, Frank I, Bradley I and Dyer I back 
from last year — a winner, we hope. 


Lent term saw the destruction of Chapman 
House's barn. Previous memories and events were 
severed with its destruction. We now boast a picnic 
table at Bar-B-Q's! 

Credit earned is credit due and all the bouquets 
should be thrown to Messrs. Cowans and Allan. Our 
long suffering housemaster, Mr. Cowans, deserves 
a standing ovation for his trouble on behalf of us 
and as a direct result from us, this year. A special 
note of congratulations is rendered to Mr. Allan on 
his winning of a National Science Foundation 
Scholarship Academic Year Institute Fellowship 
at Bowdoin College; we wish him the best of luck 
with his new studies and will look forward to his 

One last thank you paragraph and this one is 
directed at Mr. CD. Duclos, an Old Boy of the 
House and former House Prefect, who donated a 
television set to wile away the long hours with. 
It has been an invaluable gift and we thank our 
donor very much. 

It has been a good year and an enjoyable one. 
I am sure those as yet to come will turn out as well. 

Frank I (Form VI-M) 


I have been informed by various Old Boys that 
their most vivid recollections of Chapman House 
are those of the Bar-B-Q's on Saturday evenings. 
For those of you who have never witnessed one of 
these spectacles, I will try to explain by the use of 
one example. 

Blair Barwick and Terry Bovaird carried the 
food down from the kitchen, being expertly super- 
vised by Bob Appleton, who also managed to de- 
vour most of our dessert en route — a deed for which 
he was destined to pay. 

The Bar-B-Q itself was uneventful; we even 
managed to eat a little— in between mustard fights. 

Gordon MacCarthy and Charlie Collin were 
"volunteered" by house officers, Nick Miller and 
Gib Drury to dispose of the ruins of war, while the 
seniors adjounred to the pasture, for a friendly game 
of football. 

Thane Burke and Andy MacLeod, self appointed 
captains, picked teams and ends of the field. Andy's 
team kicked off with Chris (the toe) Frank booting 

the required ten yards. David (Dekes) Dyer gathered 
in the kick and out-manouvered several imaginary 
opponents, but stopped dead when hit in the mid- 
section by Graham (Gronk) McOuat's patented flying 
tackle. On the following play, Tim (rat) Bradley hit 
that nimble-fingered intellect Peter Porteous on a 
long bomb. Peter succeeded in lumbering across the 
goal line, much to the disgust of Gib Drury, who 
crept off to the end of the field where our resident 
horses were grazing, and gleefully stampeded them 
into our midst. All hell broke loose. Alan Mac- 
Naughton (may he rest in peace) tried to hurdle the 
fence, only to be brought up short in mid air by his 
overly tight levis, when he was half way across. I 
do not know what happened to Peter Fialkowski, 
but when the dust had settled and I had extracted 
my head from a pile of the unmentionable, Peter 
was suspended, somewhat untidily, between two 
strands of barbed wire, muttering oaths in suspi- 
ciously good Polish. 

Jacques LeNormand tried to take advantage of 
the confusion to score a touch down, but due to 
faulty vision, he (shudder) ran into an eagerly 
awaiting Nick Miller. Jacques was saved from total 
mutilation by Peter Boxer, who informed us that 
"Batman" was due on the T.V. in two minutes. As 
we thundered through the Cowanses vegetable gar- 
den (we honestly did not recognize it), Brian Duclos 
was heard to remark that Mr. and Mrs. Cowans were 
both looking rather frail. 

Tim Bradley (Form VI-C) 



Year Six, Day One on the Grier House Calendar 
was called September 9, 1965 in all the corners of 
Holidayland from which the Fifty Finest congregated 
for yet another school year. When the smoke from 
the opening day's confusion had cleared, it was 
discovered that not only were there nineteen House 
New Boys under our roof for the first time, but there 
was also a brand new Assistant Housemaster making 
his Canadian, as well as Grier House, debut. If the 
nineteen boys were finding the ways of Grier 
strange, imagine Mr. Callan's predicament: the chap 
at the other end of the upstairs hall was a fine char- 
acter but what about the flashy fellow downstairs? 


As the first weeks slipped by, life in Grier House 
became familiar to all. There were the touch- football 
games, as prone to arguments as ever, and the 
House barbecues, as raw as ever. Skutezky and 
Smith proved they had not lost their mooching 
talents. In the basement, what was once the Music 
Room was converted to the Drink Shop, special- 
izing in soft drinks. The first proprietors of this 
noble establishment were Charlton and Kaine, but 
after they had demonstrated their business ability, 
Abdalla and Dixon rescued the operation. 

There is something about the air on a cool au- 
tumn evening in the first term which conjures up all 
sons of fancies in the heads of Grier Housers. At 
one after-supper gathering, Duff declared he would 
be House Prefect if he returned for Seventh Form. 
After the opinions of several dissenters had been 
voiced, Duff declared he would be a Head Boy if 
he returned for Seventh Form. Another chorus of 
objections moved Duff to declare he would be a 
House Officer if he returned for Seventh Form. Time 
ran out on the discussion, but when it was ad- 
journed, most agreed that Duff might be Light 
Monitor again if he returned for Seventh Form. 

Mr. Bedard introduced the House Point System, 
as he does each year, at precisely the right moment: 
when everyone was beginning to wonder just what 
use it was to practice for the Cross Country any- 
way. The Coach's slick presentation again sold the 
Point System to the unwary athletes, and Grier 
Housers could be seen racing, jogging, and walking 
around the Cross Country course, all the time 
yearning for the House point that lay on the finish 
line. The day of the real event soon arrived, and 
Grier House made a creditable showing, Davis and 
Fox finishing among the top ten in the Senior Race. 
Dunlop and Eddy III proved to be the fleetest Grier 
Housers in the Junior competition. Gotto was one of 
the quickest to complete the Senior course and one 
of the slowest to clear the finishing area. It is not 
known how many House points he received for the 
former, but he collected six cracks from Mr. 
Patriquin for the latter. 

The passing of the away-weekend warned the 
House of the proximity of Christmas Exams — and 
the House Christmas Party. Both boys and the 
masters and their families put on skits, all of 
which were masterpieces of the theatrical art. Many 
were only thinly-disguised rap sessions, and even 
more provoked outright rap. The sight of Mr. Bedard 
in a French Canadian fisherman's attire will long 
be remembered by all, not only for its amusing 
nature, but also for Mr. Bedard' s convincing acting: 
one would have thought he spent all his non-working 
hours in rustic dress. 

The Christmas Holidays soon were over and 
Grier House opened her doors to the returning 
throng. Grier Housers frantically got in as much 
hockey and skiing as possible in the wintry second 
term, and, as always, suffered various mishaps. 
One unfortunate hockey-player from Grier was 
Shoiry, who injured his knee and could be seen 
hopping around on crutches for months. 

A championship again evaded Grier House in 
the Annual Winter Carnival, but the entire House 
took particular pride in our Snow Sculpturing entry, 
a fine piece of work which captured second place 
in the statuary event. 

The middle term is a long, tiring one, and it is 
necessary to unwind sometime during its lengthy 
weeks. Even as busy a fellow as Fox, Head of the 
Choir, who performs many chores, including, on 
weekends, the counting of the Sunday Chapel col- 
lection, managed to get in at least one relaxing 

The Formal in February was a gala affair at 
which Grier House was well-represented. Eddy I 
might say we were too well represented. It seems 
that Gretch was in Montreal that night, and Bruce 
took her roommate. When the evening was through, 
Bruce almost was too. 

The Inter-House Debating Tournament could not 
have been ready for the powerful display prepared 
by Grier in winning both Affirmative and Negative 
divisions. Davis and Jorre swept to victory on the 
Negative side and also copped the overall title. 
Charlton and Duff, representing Grier in the Affir- 
mative competition, proved superior to all in that 
section. When three debaters were chosen to speak 
for the School at the Trinity College School De- 
bating Tournament, three Grier Housers were 
selected: Duff, Fleming, and Stensrud. Although 
no team championship was won, Duff was named 
Impromptu Speaking Champion.

someone hacking at the drums. 
Bahtman — could you tell us a few 
words on your new appointment in 
Rome? You know the school will 
miss you. All the best in your 
future enterprises. 
Indeed? Well, it it with great joy 
that I say on the part of all the 
boys that, in every way, shape, 
and form, under any circumstances, 
that we have been blessed with a

for once, sleeps quietly . . . )

With only one first team colour from the 1964 
squad returning, prospects for a winning team in 
1965 seemed slight indeed. The twenty four boys 
who turned out in September were far from being 
blockbusters by any means, but they set to work 
with a will, and a spirit of willing cooperation soon 
became the hallmark of this year's team. 

The season opened auspiciously enough with a 
20-13 win over Beaconsfield, followed by an en- 
couraging 27-6 victory over Lindsay Place. But the 
real test came on Saturday, October 9, in the 
Stanstead match. The border school fielded a big, 
fast, and competent team, which, so we had heard, 
had mastered a deadly aerial attack. But something 
happened. Time and again our light linesmen broke 
through to block kicks and smother the Stanstead 
quarterback. A rouge and a converted touchdown 

sufficed to give B.CS. a two point lead, but 
Stanstead pressed on and, with the minute flag up, 
began marching towards our end. The by now des- 
perate B.CS. defenders held on and fought back, 
and the game ended with an exhausted and bruised 
B.CS. team holding on to the valuable two point 

Then, of course, came the Old Boys, (hundreds 
of them, it seemed) who, in true B.CS. tradition, 
whipped the first team 12-0, a loss that was fol- 
lowed by a discouraging 26-1 defeat at the hands of 
a capable, efficient and well drilled L.C.C. squad. 
No alibis were needed, and none were offered. The 
boys simply settled down, licked their wounds, and 
prepared for the last two games, the big ones, 
against Stanstead and Ashbury. 


^f£fc-~ '■■■•■vv'-^-^Sf ^1:Wl^P^^^^ 

For the last game of the season, a high spirited 
and eager team travelled to Ottawa, and once again 
every ounce of determination and endurance was 
called for to defeat an equally determined and cap- 
able Ashbury squad, 14-12. Twice the Purple and 
White swallowed discouragement and apparent de- 
feat to come from behind to win. Again, the final 
whistle went with the opposition on the March, and 
again the team dug in and held, bringing home the 
Old Boys' trophy for only the fifth time in four- 
teen attempts. 

The season ended with a 2-1-2- score, a credi- 
table record by any standard. It was indeed an 
"Annus Mirabilis" for all those connected with this 
year's "First Crease". 


On October 23, the B.C.S. squad travelled to 
Stanstead for a confrontation with a team deter- 
mined to wipe the field with purple and white 
sweaters. From the beginning this was a no non- 
sense game of hard blocking and punishing tackles, 
in which B.C.S. certainly gave as good as it took. 
Pelletier had learned to catch since September and 
Lawson hit him in the end zone to put B.C.S. ahead 
early in the game. Stanstead evened the score with 
a long pass, and the big push began. Stanstead un- 
leashed their vaunted passing attack with a 
vengeance and more than once were within the 
B.C.S. two yard line, but once again our defence 
rallied and broke through to foil what appeared to be 
certain Stanstead touchdowns. The final whistle 
went with the score tied, and B.C.S. the holders of 
the Senator Howard trophy by a slim two point mar-

Aglance at the scores indicates that a 3-2 record 
may not be a fair appraisal of the Second Team's 
over-all performance. The two defeats were cliff 
hangers from the start and could have gone either 


This year's offensive team was very strong along 
the ground but weak through the air. The lack of a 
passing attack can bring an offence to a standstill 
since a running attack alone can be defended 
against. When playing two good teams like Beacon- 
field and Selwyn House this is what happened. 

Stanstead adjusted to our powerful end runs and 
off-tackles in the return match and only a short 
screen pass pattern preserved the victory. 

Eastview of Ottawa were not prepared for the 
ground attack and the backs led by Stewart, Rubin, 
Howson, McClellan and Nares had a field day. An 
amusing sight during the game saw Long John 
Oughtred snare a Stewart pass out of the clouds. 
The happy victory made the bus ride home much 
shorter and was an excellent way to climax a good 

Since this year's squad had many third and 
fourth formers on it the prospect for an excellent 
season next year looks very bright.

Third Crease Football this year continued the 
ahderence to the principle that this is primarily a 
training crease where the emphasis should be, and 
is, placed on the fundamentals of football— blocking, 
tackling, ball-handling, the rules and elementary 
strategy of the game. Most important as well, a boy 
is exposedfsometimes for the first time) to the need 
for, and value of, physical fitness, and the Crease 
is conducted so that every participant learns a 
basic program of fitness that, if he wishes, can be 
used for the rest of his life. 

After an initial period of gradually intensifying 
conditioning and running, stimulated by various 
games, equipment was donned and fundamentals 
practice began, in preparation for the Third Crease 
League. This began after Thanksgiving, with four 
teams selected by the coaches. 

The League competition was as fierce as ever, 
with each team playing about twelve games before 
the play-offs. That this sort of spirit was a credit 
to the boys involved, in the face of weather con- 
ditions that could be described as abysmal, rain 
being customary from above, and mud below. In 
fact, the writer recalls only one really fine fall day, 
with typical crisp blue sky and bright sun, and three 
inches of snow on the ground providing the only 
j arnng note. 

The League Champions this year was the team 
captained by Eddy II. The other Captains were 
Dunlop, Eddy III and Fisher. 

The now-traditional game with Selwyn House 
was played at the end of October. Selwyn emerged 
victorious for the first time by the very close score 
of IV 12, in a thrilling match played on a snowy 

Junior colours were awarded to Burke II and 
Hackney. The Crease coaches were Mr. Cowans, 
Mr. Allan and Mr. Read.

This was a big year in B.C.S. soccer. The first 
crease moved to the new field, an inspiringly gen- 
erous and flat sward of green, on which a full, 
adult-sized soccer field was easily laid with wide 
margins around it, and an extra practice area to 
boot. Secondly, and with more far-reaching effect, 
first class colours were awarded to soccer players 
for the first time in B.C.S. history. This marks a 
milestone on the road that soccer had followed at 
B.C.S., emphasizing the trend of the sport's ever- 
increasing also recognizes the marked 
improvement in the quality of the players, their 
speed, agility, ball-control and tactical knowledge.. 
The first team's fine performance last year in 
winning the league trophy, and this year in being 
runners-up (losing 0-1 to winners S.H.S.) demon- 
strates this. 

Once again, three creases were formed, coached 
by Messrs. J. Clifton, J. Grimsdell and T. Callan. 
Mr. Callan, a recent acquisition by the school, is 
a most welcome and able addition to the soccer 
coaching staff. 

The junior team was less successful this year. 
The age limit of 15 highly restricts the number of 
boys eligible to play, and it is in this age group 
that soccer feels the greatest competition from the 
more prestigious football. 

Space permits only a brief mention of the regular 
players on the first team, but it should be noted 
that, as in all team sports, team-work is vital and 
in this respect every member of the team playedhis 
individual part with unselfish skill. Captain S. 
McConnell, probably the ablest soccer player the 
school has had, was a tower of strength at centre- 


half. He was ably supported by Vice-Captain T. 
Jones at full-back, and C. Kaine, an agile and feat- 
less goalie. The fotwatd line was spearheaded by 
the solid and hard-kicking P. Anido who was flanked 
by the speedy E. Shoiry at right wing, and tricky 
left-wing J. Haines. Strong inside support came 
from D. Brickenden and J. Nicholl. Finally, the 
defence was further strengthened by D. Barry and 
T. Burke as wing-halves, and C. Gotto at full-back. 

The third crease was a large one and a "little 
league" was organized within it. Here again, the 
standard of play was very high even if at times it 
was a little light-hearted. 

Unfortunately, a heavy snowfall caused the 
Ashbury College match to be cancelled. The annual 
match against the Staff, always a close one, re- 
sulted in a 3-3 tie, even though overtime was 
played in failing light and a minor blizzard.

Hockey brings the School most ferquently into 
contact with the outside communities. In this game, 
we have won and enjoyed for many years an en- 
viable reputation amongst opponents, officials and 
fans. Superior condition, capable and cleanly ag- 
gressive teams, spirited and noisy, but never 

obnoxious supporters, an absolute taboo on referee 
baiting, and a healthy habit of letting the other guys 
collect the cheap penalties, — these qualities, plus 
a scoring record that almost invariably topped the 
opposition, were reflected in the lustre of the 
A.O.B.A. Trophy, held 16-1/3 times in the past 21 


Current absence of this silverware reminds of a 
deficit in assets. These represent serious, but re- 
parable losses. During the past season we ran out 
of a number of items which were in short supply the 
previous year but whose scarcity went largely un- 
heeded. Once an honest selfassessment points out 
the real deficiencies, we can restock and get back 
into business. It has been done before, and success- 
fully, at this long-established institution, in this 
fine and firmly-established game. We shall go for- 
ward again, wiser and ultimately stronger for having 
known our weakness.

C Abbott (Form VI-M) 

Minor Hockey 

The 1965-66 season saw a total of five B.C.S. 
teams competing in the midget and bantam divisions 
of the Q.M.H.A. Although only one championship 
was gained, the true spirit of amateur hockey was 
captured at both levels. 

In the bantam section the Hurons defeated the 
Algonquins for their championship; they then faced 
off in a double round-robin series against the 
winners of the other two divisions. The B.C.S. team 
won it's first two games by scores of 5-4 and 6-5 
and then tied the third 5-5- Either a tie or a win in 
their final game would give the Hurons the overall 
championship. In a well fought game the Hurons 
skated to a 3-3 tie, thus copping the Sherbrooke 
bantam league title. 

B.C.S. iced three teams in the midget division, 
the Abenakis, Mohawks, and the Crees. All three of 
these clubs met with varying successes, (and 
failures). The Crees missed the play-offs while the

Mohawks were eliminated early in the post-sectional 
playdowns. The Abenakis, traditionally the strongest 
B.C.S. midget representatives, reached the finals 
against Sherbrooke High School. B.C.S. won the 
first game of the best of three series and then 
dropped the second. In the deciding game the dis- 
appointed Ab's were downed by the determined 
S.H.S. squad. 

As in the case of the First team the Ab's met 
little success at Deerfield, Mass., and suffered a 
humiliating 6-0 loss. The Ab's also were defeated 
at the hands of the well-coached L.C.C. roster, 
loosing a high scoring affair. However, the Abenakis 
did turn back the Stanstead team twice and skated 
to victory against St. George's in their only 

There were also two teams in the school which 
played almost only inter-school games. The Apaches 
and the Choctaws provided excellent scrimmages 
for the league teams as well as playing a couple 
of games with other schools. 

True to another B.C.S. tradition the hockey 
coaches proved to be of the highest calibre. All 
those who participated in minor hockey this season 
join in extending thanks to Messrs. Abbott, 
Campbell, Cruickshank, Denison, Large, Milligan, 
and Owen.

The programme of Competitive Skiing this year 
was carried out with unprecedented enthusiasm and 
energy by all concerned. The activities of the 
teams, being much more numerous and varied than 
they have been in previous years, made 1966 a mem- 
orable season for all of us, who entered upon it 
perhaps somewhat hesitantly. 

A number of firsts in the history of Competitive 
Skiing at B.C.S. were inaugurated this year. It is 
hoped that they will be continued in future years, 
as they proved to augment the quality of the skiing 
greatly, as well as to make the season pleasurable 
and successful. 

Each week we travelled to Mount Orford, where 
we received excellent professional instruction from 
Orford's head pro, Mario Podorieszach and his wife 
Nancy, formerly Nancy Holland of the Canadian 
Women's National team. These trips were as much 
fun as they were instructional, and I am sure that 
all of us will remember Mario's benign stringency, 
and Nancy's laughing face. The general caliber 
of our skiing was immeasurably improved through 
their patience and efforts with us. We hope that 
in years to come, potential B.C.S. racers will have 
the benefit of their instruction. 

Another first was our participation in the Eastern 
Townships Ski Zone races at Thetford Mines, East 
Angus and Mount Echo, in which we had mixed re- 
sults. Several of our racers distinguished them- 


selves and the School by their successes in some 
of these races, and the meets were a thoroughly 
worthwhile undertaking. 

In the East Angus meet, in which the Juniors 
only took part, John Dyer (II), who turned out to be 
the best of our Junior prospects, won the first place 
trophy in the Boy's "A" Class. He was followed by 
Collin who placed fifth, and Ferguson, sixth. The 
entries from B.C.S. in the Boy's "B" Class were 
almost equally as successfully, Clarke II placing 
second, Viets fifth, and Harpur II sixth. 

Of the seven out of thirty-two Junior A. racers 
who managed to qualify in both runs of the Zone 
Championship slalom at Mount Echo, B.C.S. had 
three skiers: Peter Porteous, the team captain, 
David Dyer, and Douglas Harpur, who placed se- 
cond, sixth, and seventh respectively. 

In the same meet, in the Junior C. Class, Dyer 
II placed second, and Clarke II sixth.

There was an element of competition introduced 
into the Non-Competitive Ski Crease this year. The 
more than seventy members were grouped into four 
teams which competed vigorously in a broomball 
league in the stretch before Christmas and the 
coming of the snow. Many exciting games played 
with an ever-changing set of rules, culminated in 
the team captained by Miller I being declared the 
broomball champions of the world. 

The opening of the second term brought the long- 
awaited snow, and for the remainder of the season, 
the skiing was the best in the last three or four 
years. The School tow was operated almost daily 
for two months, and each Wednesday and Saturday, 
afternoon buses left for Hillcrest, so that even the 
most eager members of the crease got a full quota 
of skiing. 

Messrs. Allan, Grimsdell and Callan supervised 
the crease.

Cricket once again began this year with dry, 
though very chilly Spring net practices and, des- 
pite the Longshoremen's strike and the consequent 
delay in the arrival of new equipment from England, 
many valuable shapings-up of strokes and limb- 
erings-up of bowling arms were accomplished. The 
First Crease was notable for its very young age, a 
good portent for the team in future years, since no 
less than six of the twelve players were under six- 
teen. The Under XVI side did not seem to feel the 
loss of these players, and managed to preserve their 
unbeaten record against Ashbury College. 

The weather was generally more clement than 
in most years, with no matches cancelled nor even 
delayed because of it. As usual, the boys learnt 
much from their matches with the men's teams from 
Montreal, being treated to a particularly fine display 
of batting by Grant on the Bank of Montreal team. 
It was very pleasing to meet an Old Boy, Selman 
Khazzam, playing against the School for the Adas- 
trians, particularly when he hit a brisk 31 before 
being run out. It is certainly a great pity that there 
are not more B.CS. Old Boys continuing with their 
cricket, surely an ideal sport, in Montreal. 

The Old Boys match, the second in the series, 
was again a great success. With the aid of Mr. 
Bedard who scored 31 of their runs, the Old Boys 
beat the School by 27 runs — a very fitting result. 
F. Meredith scored 16 and W. Mitchell 10 runs for 
their side, while S. Molson, G. Glass and D. 
McLernon divided the wickets between them. In the 
Masters match, the Masters at last gained a triumph 


by forcing a draw on the School. After racking up 
an impressive 173 runs (everyone just had to bat!) 
the Masters left the boys only l-% hours to try to do 
better. This they really did, for in that short time 
they put on 124 runs, losing only 4 wickets.

The loss of two Ashbury matches can only be 
explained by one fact; Ashbury had the better team. 
The cricket was good, but not from the spectator's 
point of view; on a total of 9- l A hours batting time, 
the two sides scored only 29 3 runs in their 4 
innings. That tells a story of extreme caution at the 
wicket, tense, defensive strokes, and the consequent 
slow loss of wickets through sheer nerves. Next 
year, the team can be confident, with their greater 
experience, that they will win back the shield with 

It is a long time since B.C.S. has had such a 
strong and enthusiastic coaching staff. Messrs. 
Clifton and Grimsdell handled the First and Under 
16 Creases as usual, but it was in the New Boys 
Crease that there was the greatest improvement. 
Using the wide new field (almost panoramic) on 
which two games could be played concurrently, the 
New Boys were divided into three groups for 
coaching by Messrs. Cowans, Guest and Callan 
until they were finally formed into 4 league teams 
for the bulk of the season. Mr. Marshall again 
coached the Prep School. If cricket is to continue 
as a major sport at B.C.S., it is at the New Boy 
level that enthusiasm and ability must be developed. 

Enthusiasm has certainly been developed by one 
eyent this year. Quebec decided to send a team to 
the Junior Provincial Cricket Tournament, held 
in Vancouver during the first week of July. B.C-S. 
has been asked to make up the majority of the 
players and so 10 B.C.S. boys, plus two Old Boys, 
will go with the side, with Mr. Clifton as team 
coach and manager. Here valuable match experience, 
as well as a wider appreciation of the status of 
cricket in Canada, will be gained.

The Track Crease turnout was the smallest in 
many years, and some of those who came out were 
just out for the exercise. We were fortunate early 
in the season because good weather and dry fields 
enabled us to have practices on the lower field in 
the first few days. The weather soon deteriorated 
to snow and cold weather, which hampered creases 
up until a week before the Track Meet. 

By using weights and special exercises for par- 
ticular events, the team was soon put in shape. 
However, it was still lacking runners in the Bantam 
Class. A week before the meet, a last minute at- 
tempt was made to recruit junior members for the 
Track Team. A Bantam Section was formed, but no 
pee wee section, because the Prep only had one 
pee wee. 

The Track Meet held on a bright and sunny May 
21st. From the beginning, it was clear that the team 
did not have the depth to compete with the loaded 
Junior Class of Stanstead and the pee wees and 
bantams of Cowansville. Consequently, the team 
came fourth with few distinctions. Tom Law ac- 
cepted the prize for the team with the highest 
number of points in the midget class and Peter 
Porteous won the high aggregate trophy for the 
most points in the Juvenile Class. 

Major Abbott coached the team, in spite of 
poor health, with Mr. Milligan's help. We are in- 
debted to them both for their advice and assistance 
in a particularly tough season. 

Colours were awarded to Blackader, Burbidge I, 
Law, Montano I, Montano II and Porteous.

SQUASH, 1966 

This year we had an excellent turnout of squash 
enthusiasts, perhaps the largest group yet. Although 
there were no outstanding players, there was much 
competition throughout the year. Mr. Owen, the 
master-in-charge of the squash crease this year, 
organized a regular crease every afternoon as well 
as two interesting tournaments. The first was a 
competition for the masters and seventh formers. Mr. 
Grimsdell, the star of the masters, defeated Drury 
in the final. The second was a spirited contest be- 
tween the squash crease and the masters. Charlton 
proved superior to Mr. Grimsdell and edged him in 
the final. An interesting sidelight to the latter tour- 
nament was the match between Mr. Troubetzkoy and 
Barwick. Mr. Troubetzkoy, a veritable giant battled 
against Barwick, who just manages to measure up 
to five feet. 

Besides these activities, there was the regular 
School Squash Championship. The competition was 
extremely fierce and many players not on the squash 
crease entered. McClellan and Molson were the fi- 
nalists, the latter winning a tough match. 

With an excellent year behind us, we look to the 
future and hope that squash will continue to be a 
popular and competitive short at B.C.S. 

The B.C.S. Squash Invitation Tournament 

The Old Boys' Association deserves a vote of 
thanks for the outstanding event it presented on the 
weekend of Nov. 27-28. The list of guest players 
for the Annual B.C.S. Invitation Squash Tournament 
included No. 1, No. 2, No. 5 ranking Canadian 
players, plus a host of Class A competitors from 
the Montreal district. 

A number of well fought matches highlighted the 
first day of play, but no upsets were recorded. The 
top seeded players met in the semi-finals. Smith 
Chapman defeating Ross Adair in 4 games and 
Colin Adair eking out 3 straight games over Rick 
G aun t . 

Smith Chapman was favored in his match against 
Colin Adair, but the latter displayed remarkable 
early-season form to win handily in 3 straight games 
— and thus repeat as winner of the Grant Memorial 

As per tradition, all pailicipants congregated at 
Hovey — after a reception at Plantation, guests of 
Mr. Large. The evening was most enjoyable and 
everyone is looking forward to repeat performances 
by the Breen Marians, Scotty Fraser, and all the 
other loose-limbed athletes. 

Start of the annual cross-country race. 






The Kenneth Hugessen Prize Winner 

The secret of all life which is to be continued 
is change. Growth comes from change. It is often 
hard to say whether or not a change is always a 
step forward; it is sufficient to know that the sum 
of all changes moves this world forward. How do we 
know that it is moving forward? What signs point 
to this fact? To answer these questions, one must 
take oneself out of mundane existance, andlook 
down on the world below, a onetime red-hot mass of 
boiling rock and hissing steam. Gradually it cooled 
and life appeared. Plant and animal life spread over 
the world, covering it by its mass reproduction and 
adaptations. The world progressed until the present 
day, where the observer has difficulty in seeing 
ahead. He may lose all faith in the future of the 
world, merely because he cannot see its path. 

For some time, possibly twenty years, the person 
plods on, trying each direction until finally, the 
clouds lift, and he can see the path again. In this 
way a loss of faith produced growth. Our traveller 
went on with sheer determination until his faith was 
restored, until he could believe once more. How- 
ever, a loss of faith does not always result in blind 
wandering, followed by a return of faith. For some, 
a loss of faith leads to death or to a life of nothing- 
ness, where night and day are the same. For some 
others, a loss of faith causes an increased curiosity 
and a strengthening of purpose. 

This idea opens the door to all sorts of modern 
discoveries. A loss of faith in Arrhenius's Theory 
of electrolytes led to Bohr's Theory. A loss of 
faith in the modern theory of the atom may lead to 
a completely new wave theory. A loss of faith in 
the Biblical history of the earth caused man to 
delve back into his past in search of the secrets 
of his evolution. The minds of many people re- 
quire faith as a foundation. Many others can live 
reasonably well without it. For those who depend 
on faith the loss of it is a great shock. This fact 
is shown by the shock created in the world when 
Darwin published his book on evolution. A loss of 
faith shocks some people into action —they begin to 
think, to explore new areas for the foundation of a 
new faith, or to relay the old one on a firmer foun- 

In floundering, these people cover a vast area 
of new territory, causing a growth of knowledge 
and intelligence. When a new foundation has been 
found, they settle down, waiting knowingly or un- 
knowingly for the next tremor. Hence, a loss of 
faith causes a growth, a widening of our horizons. 
It is true enough that some are lost in the eddies 
of the rushing river of discovery, but in general, 
there has been growth. 

This last idea can only bring to mind the present 
generation of young adults. When one thinks of our 
generation, it is always a good idea to remember 
the story about the two Biblical characters building 
houses. One built his house upon sand, and it was 

washed away. The other built his upon rock, and it 
remained In a similar fashion, the young adults of 
today who question religion, morals, and our way of 
life are simply guaranteeing a good foundation for 
themselves. Those who change from Christianity to 
atheism are experimenting and trying to justify their 
beliefs. Many grow up in families that go to church 
regularly. On reaching a certain age, they find that 
no matter how much they want to, they are not able 
to believe in God. They lose faith in His existence, 
in His teachings, and in all He stands for. They 
proceed to study other religions and philosophies 
until they find one that they can believe and that 
satisfies their needs. Reasonably often, this final 
religion is Christianity, one they could not under- 
stand ten years before. These so-called non- 
believers are, in the end, much more firm in their 
beliefs than those who never bother to question-to 
lose faith and grow in wisdom and understanding. 

Many of us believe blindly in democracy, without 
ever questioning it. When we are called upon to de- 
scribe it, we are incapable of doing so. The Jap- 
anese, during World War II, found it very wasy to 
convince the prisoners that democracy was wrong, 
and that the Japanese were correct. 

Few of us take the time to question, to lose 
faith. It is much more difficult to lose faith, to live 
through the hells of despair, uncertainty, depression 
and loneliness, than to cling limpetlike to some 
belief. In the final analysis, though, all the trouble 
is worth the satisfaction, comfort, and strength of a 
well-founded faith.

She opened her eyes slowly, and attentively sur- 
veyed the walls around her room. Not that she could 
authentically call it hers though, for her brother 
shared the double bed. She was alone now, however, 
as Cal had gone to work. The whole family was very 
proud of him, ever since he had won, or she should 
say, earned the job at the theatre. Cleaning aisles 
wasn't that good a job, but it kept the family eating, 
and Cal would be occupied until he was old enough 
to join the army. 

She jumped out of bed and was startled by the 
sudden coldness of the wooden floor. Stretching, 
she smelled the hint of gasoline in the air. Ob- 
viously from the corner station. She thought of all 
the cars that must fill there every day. After drop-

Keep tnem clean. 


After breakfast she helped her mother with the 
morning chores and then roused her three younger 
brothers around seven thirty. 

This was Lynn's lucky day; the Government had 
sent them relief money again, and it was her turn to 
use a portion. She had talked to the principal of 
P.S. 15 over the phone about going to the school. 
She had been asked to attend class this morning, 
for a tryout. After getting on the bus at the corner 
and rehearsing her manners, it was well past eight. 

Soon the bus driver arrived at her stop and let 
her out. Right across the street was her destination. 

It was an unhealthy building on the outside, 
painted a filthy red. There was a double set of 
doors, on which were carved the initials and hearts 
of past inmates of the hollow walls. Directly above 
was a wrought iron plaque bearing the inscription — 
P. S. 15 
est. 1925 
It was two stories high and small windows, six in 
all, cluttered the walls on each floor. On the roof 
was the American flag. As long as she .could re- 
member, she had always loved to watch a flag ripple 
in the wind, especially the American flag. Her 
father had been a soldier once, a full sergeant, but 
that was before her parents were married. 

She crossed the street and, opening the wire 
gate, started towards the back of the building to 
where she heard yelling voices. As she turned the 
corner into the little yard she saw twenty kids at 
around her age, playing with their balls and ropes, 
and writing with chalk upon the concrete ground. 

Then some boy turned and saw Lynn standing at 
the corner. He called the others and they all stopped 
to see as well. Just then an elderly lady of around 
fifty came out the back door and asked what Lynn 
wanted. Lynn told her her name and why she had 
come. The teacher said she must be mistaken and 

that the school was for she stopped, thought 

a moment, and then asked if Lynn would come in for 
a moment. 

Just then a stone hit Lynn in the side of the 
face and the blood trickled from the small cut as 
some boy yelled, "Go home, nigger," and another 
yelled, "Get out, ya black." 

Lynn stared at them, cold for a moment, tears 
of hate, not anguish, tolling down her cheeks to 
the tip of the nose. She turned and ran to the pelt- 
ing of missiles around her. As she ran, she heard 
the cross, but useless scolding of the elderly lady. 
Once across the street, she halted and began to 
compose herself while waiting for her bus. Staring 
down, she saw a ripe blood stain on her sock and 
skirt. Her arm was also bleeding. 

The bus rumbled around the corner and pulled 
to a stop. Just as it did so, Lynn heard echoing from 
across the street, in one of the classrooms; the 
students beginning their daily American oath of 
allegiance. With the sound, Lynn raised her eyes 
to the still fluttering flag atop the red school house. 
As the word equality rang clearly across the street, 
she turned and spat.

The American Civil War was in high gear in 1864. 
Blue and grey ants raced through the woods and the 
smoky fogs of gunpowder to kill and slaughteryoung 
faces. Generals barked orders and cannons hurled 
shot, and many more were to fall before this cloud 
of gloom rose. The negro remained on his master's 
lonely farm hoping for emancipation, and the Pre- 
sident of the United States, (which weren't so united 
any more) meditated his Gettysburg Address. 

On the farm of Samuel White, just outside 
Washington, there were two negro slaves: a tall one, 
with a black beard and spectacles, named Abe 
Lincoln, and a short, stocky one, called George 
Washingfield. Of course, all of Abe's friends and 
associates nicknamed him "Mr. President", and he 
received many letters from all over America, ad- 
dressed: "President Abe Lincoln, White House, 
Washington". Abe diligently wrote back to these 
worried folk, and gave much advice concerning the 
national problems. But unlike Abe, George, who 
hadn't any kin, never received mail. 

So one hot day, when the sun beamed over the 
farmyard and squirrels scampered up the trunk of an 
old oak, George bought one of Abe's letters for 

three Confederate dollars, on the condition that he 
write back to the sender advising him what he 
thought best. 

Now Abe and George had always been con- 
sidered very knowledgeable amongst the slaves of 
Washington, but the truth was that George could 
neither read nor write. This may have been a reason 
why he didn't receive letters, but George, not being 
a calculating man, wasn't sure. But having finally 
got one, he wished to find its meaning, but did not 
want Abe to know of his lack of schooling in these 
fine arts. 

So he decided that since he was an American, 
and could recite the "Pledge of Allegiance", which 
Abe had taught him, he would sneak into Washington 
and ask one of the men there what the letter said. 

George thus left the farm for Washington, telling 
Abe that he was researching for the letter. When he 
got to the city, he went to an old stucco house, 
with green lawns, willow trees, a meandering cobble- 
stone walk and iron gates, where Andrew Johnston, 
a Southern Democrat and the Vice-President, lived. 
Since Johnston was the Vice-President, George 
figured that he would be almost as nice as Abe. So 


he climbed over the gates, and after a few minutes, 
was speaking to Andrew Johnston. Johnston 
smoothed his hair, placed his glasses over a 
crooked nose, and on the crumpled paper before 
him read of a planned assassination of the real 
Abraham Lincoln, which was to occur at the Gettys- 
burg Address. George was shocked and naturally 
asked where Gettysburg lived. Johnston explained 
what the address was, telling George that he would 
soon be famous for having saved this man's life. 

He asked George to say nothing to Abe con- 
cerning his trip and the letter. So George agreed, 
and taking one of Johnston's cigars, left for the 
White House. 

Abe questioned his friend, but George refused 
to tell him anything even when offered his three 
dollars back, saying only to wait for the Gettysburg 

So the cold November morning of that eventful 
day arrived, and the two friends were at the scene 
in the midst of a large, shabbily dressed crowd. 
A cool breeze rustled its way through the trees and 
chilled the unclean faces of the men and women 
treading on the hard, dusty earth. The many gathered 
fell into a hush, then into drowsiness, and finally 
into a sound slumber, as a local politician fili- 
bustered on the creaky platform. His anxious glance 
to both ends of the platform suggested that he 
awaited someone's arrival. George and Abe sensed 
this and so did President Lincoln, though the rest 

of those assembled had long since departed in their 


A man came on horseback, wearing a sombrero 
and at his side rested a revolver. He moved among 
the still forms seated on the rows and rows of 
wooden crates. The speaker, his voice rising with 
elated emotion, quickly ended with, "And now I 
give you the President of the United States — 
Abraham Lincoln." 

Lincoln, who had been eyeing the newcomer — 
obviously the assassin, as he was dressed in 
black — strode unafraid to the rostrum, his hands 
firmly gripping its dark sides. His brown eyes 
questioningly met those of the assassin as he 
warmly enunciated each beautiful syllable of his 
address. He looked softly on the now awakened 
and spell bound Americans, as he emphasized, 
"a nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to the 
proposition that all men are created equal". All 
was gently hushed as his voice inspired each per- 
son to great heights of true emotion and love for 
America as he pleaded for peace in "a nation of the 
people, by the people, and for the people". 

And when he had finished, the assassin, no 
longer was an assassin, but a friend, as were all 
those present. But few knew of the assassin or the 
negro who had warned Lincoln, and even fewer 
remembered, but I did. 

I was the assassin.

The restless rhythm sways the walls, 

Inverted images rise and fall, 
Forms and faces cling, 

Engulfed in cloudy, swirling, liquid mist. 

Silent laughter floats from floor to wall, 

Muffling all sound, 

All movement 
In its path. 

Somewhere in the black abyss, 
A point of light 
Is born, 
And grows, 
Gives birth to three that glow, 

And die, 
And three more should drift sideways 
Through the Gates. 

At three A.M. the Darkness calls, 
And beckons me beyond the walls, 
With fluid fingers, enclosing all. 

Inside the Umbra of that murky hour, 
I move through misty, pavement swamps. 
My senses, opaque behind the fog, 
Discover that the borders of 
The Gloom 
Are undefined. 

Werewolf figures 

Stalk in silence, 

Leap the gothic castles 

Silhouetted by cathedral stillness 
And wait, 

In my evil, inner void, 
For the chance of Spring.

The H.M.CS. Bonavemure would be making her 
voyage of 1966 and the last trip with Capt. H.A. 
Porter serving as her master. She would sail from 
Halifax to Lauzon, Quebec, where she would enter 
drydock for a yearlong refit. Capt. Porter and many 
other officers of the ship wished to take their sons 
on a sea voyage. 

The excursion was arranged and Allan Porter 
promptly received permission from the Headmaster 
to make the trip and to take along a few other boys 
from the School. From Fifth Form he chose his 
cousin, Tom Law, and John Phillips. Out of his 
Third Form comrades he picked Peter Winn, and 
myself. We each received permission and the trip 
was on. 

We left the School on the afternoon of Thursday, 
April 21, and after spending the night at the resi- 
dence of Captain Porter in Como, Quebec, we flew 
to Halifax. A Navy staff car whisked us down to 
the docks and we boarded Canada's only aircraft 

Captain Porter greeted us and took us on a quick 
tour of the flight deck, explaining the catapult and 
landing mechanisms. Unfortunately all the planes 
had been flown off before reaching Halifax Harbour 
not to return until after the refit. 

Since the Captain of a R.C.N, ship is required 
by regulations to sleep on the bridge, Mr. Porter 
generously offered us the use of his sitting room 
for the duration of the trip. 

Next we were given sheets and blankets and 
instructed to make up our bunks. All fifty boys on 
the boat slept in one big mess (dorm) with triple 
decker bunks. Fortunately, we were situated in the 
centre of the ship where there is the least pitch 
and roll, although we didn't meet any rough weather. 

Friday evening after departure from the harbour, 
we got our first chance to taste a navy meal and it 
was delicious, along with all the others served on 
board. They were served cafeteria style and in un- 
limited quantity. 

Friday, after supper, was the first of three ex- 
cellent movies that were shown, one each night. 

Saturday morning after breakfast we went on the 
first of our tours within the ship. Our guide showed 
and explained to us the refrigeration systems, boiler 
rooms and engine rooms. Around the boilers and 
engines it is not uncommon for the temperature to 
rise above 130° Farenheit, when sailing in the 

Next we made a fast inspection of the ship's 
supply rooms and part storage areas. 

After lunch we went out on to the flight deck, 
but due to the extreme cold and wind we gathered 
on the lift and were lowered into the hangars. There 
are two lifts, forward and aft, and three hangars. 
Two between the elevators and one behind the aft 
lift, all of which can be separated by asbestos fire 
curtains. The space to the rear of the lift is used 
for helicopters and the other two areas are for the 
tracker aircraft. 

Following our visit to the hangars, we proceeded 
to the radar rooms, which I found to be the most 
interesting part of the ship. A number of the older, 
obsolete radar displays were being scrapped so we 
were allowed to toy with them as we pleased. 

Sunday morning before the short church service, 
we made a quick tour of the miscellaneous places 
we had not seen, such as the jail cells, and wheel 
house, which has no windows, but the steersman 
manoeuvres the ship by watching the three gyro 

Lastly, we looked at the eight-ton anchors and 
were told about the winch system for hauling them 

After church and lunch, we played deck hockey 
on the flight deck and volley ball on one of the lifts 
which had been lowered. 

Sunday evening we saw the last of the movies 
and Monday morning we docked at Lauzon at about 

At noon Capt. Porter treated us to an excellent 
dinner in his cabin and drove us back to School, 
arriving at about 4.30 P.M. 

So ended our journey on the H.M.CS. Bonaventure 
and it was certainly most worthwhile to learn the 
facts in Navy carrier.

In his 'A Writer's Notebook' Somerset Maugham men- 
tioned a story situation that he had never used: Two men 
in a lonely outpost: one gets many letters, the other none. 
The latter persuades the former to sell him one of his 
letters. Later, his friend asks him what was in it, but 
he refuses to tell. The original owner of the letter gets 
more and more upset, even offers to buy the letter back, 
is still refused. ....... 

The following story is based upon Maugham' s unused 
story idea. 


There is no word to describe how desolate that 
part of the country was. The vegetation was any- 
thing but plentiful, the earth was a dirty orange and 
had been baked hard by the constant shining of the 
sun. This part of Australia was almost a desert, 
and the inhabitants lived like desert people all over 
the world. 

To this part of the country the two men had co'me 
six months ago. They were employees of the Gov- 
ernment, and had been sent into the Outback, one 
hundred miles from Alice Springs. Their job was to 
propect for a new source of water which would save 
the famous town from becoming deserted. 

The two men were different, one was big, strong 
and good looking, the other was vastly overweight 
and he carried such an air of sickness around him 
that it seemed to impregnate everything he touched. 
Their job was as boring as the land was useless 
and through these long hours of uselessness they 
learned to accept each other's friendship. 

They had one link with the outer world, that was 
the once weekly plane which flew in with the mail. 
Each time it arrived Gilmore, the strong, and Dudley, 
the fat, went out to meet it and each time the pilot 
would step out and give Gilmore a bundle of letters 
and Dudley a sympathetic smile. The scene at the 
camp, and the plane's departure, was the same each 
time also. Gilmore would settle down to read and 
Dudley to stare. Finally the day before the mail 
was to come Dudley had a proposition. 

"I'll give you five pounds for one of your letters 

"You've got it," was the answer, for what was 
one letter compared with five quid. So the next day 
Gilmore let Dudley pick from his pile. For the first 
time the scene was different. They both sat down 
in their usual corners, but this time both had some- 
thing to read. After he was finished Dudley put the 
letter in his breast pocket and guarded it jealously. 
When they were smoking after supper Gilmore be- 
came curious and asked what it had said. The 
answer was a curt, "None of your business." 

Gilmore was quiet for the rest of the night, but 
the thought of the letter had not left his mind. The 
curt answer only served to whet his curiosity even 
more. By the next morning he had put it out of his 
mind and went about his job the usual way, but by 
night yearning had returned and this time Dudley's 
answer was the same. 

By the next evening Gilmore was so curious that 
he offered to pay Dudley back the five pounds just 


to have a look at the letter. The answer was a flat 


This went on for many weeks. Dudley would 
carry the letter next to his heart all day and at night 
when, as always, he slept in his clothes it was in 
the same pocket. Gilmore was by this time almost 
a nervous wreck. He wouldn't sleep at night, but 
would lie for hours thinking about the letter. Other 
mail kept coming but he could never seem to get 
around to opening them and they grew into a pile 
beside his bed. Any feeling of friendship which they 
might have had for each other had gone and it was 
replaced by constant suspicion for each other. 
Dudley, also, had changed. The sickly look which 
had so enveloped him before had gone and probably 
for the first time in his adult life he looked like a 
man with a purpose. He now carried his vast bulk 
like a badge and where once the native helpers had 
turned to Gilmore for orders, they now looked on 
Dudley as their boss. Gilmore was now almost an 
animal. He would sit and stare at Dudley for hours 
with a stare like that of a caged animal. He didn't 
bother :o ask for the letter any more because he 
knew what the answer would be. Reduced by long 
process to this half animal state he devised a plan. 
Death for Dudley was what he wanted. A compromise 
to this never entered his mind, for it seemed that 
he had lost the power to reason. 

He picked the first clear night to do it. For 
months he had lain on his bed waiting for Dudley 
to go to sleep and he knew when it was safe to 
strike. He waited patiently that night and when he 
knew he was asleep, he crept to Dudley's bed. Using 
a piece of pipe he knocked him unconscious. It 
would have been simple to take the letter and read 
it, but the poor man, half mad, seemed to feel that by 
even touching the letter while he was alive, Dudley 
would somehow stop him. 

He put the body on one of the horses and with 
it in tow he went out into the night. Soon he came 
in the waterhole. Tipping the body to the ground he 
knelt, muttering his hate for the man. It was now 
that the months of torture rose to a peak and with 
a stroke Gilmore cut Dudley's throat. He felt the 
warm blood spurt against his hand and in the moon- 
light he saw the dark patch around the dead man's 
head grow in size. How often had he dreamt of this 
moment? He found the envelope and walked back 
to the horse, knowing that in a few days after the 
scent of meat had begun to spread the wildlife 
would leave nothing but some bones picked clean 
of all meat. 

When he got back to the camp, he carefully 
sealed away the envelope. He held the letter as 
with trembling fingers he opened it. The months of 
lying against Dudley's sweaty body showed on the 
letter. The edges were frayed and the writing had 
almost faded away. He read it slowly, then again 
he rose grasping the letter and ran out into the 

The plane came out of the sun, first a small 
speck, then growing until its wings made a shadow 
that travelled over the landscape towards the camp. 
The pilot circled the small cluster of huts three 
times then landed and taxied up to them. As he got 

out with the mail, he noticed the absence of life. 
He followed the tracks to the waterhole. 

This is part of the report he made to the cor- 
oners' jury. "I came across the two bodies. The 
man I knew as Gilmorewas lying on top of the other. 
His hand grasping a knife into his heart, while the 
other was lying with his throat cut. Gilmore was

Spews forth its seed — multiplies 

The pansy rests in the small rich garden, 
Caressed by hand, pampered, spoiled, 
Regal beauty leaves no speed.

The living and the dead. 
The constant, the sporadic, 
The luckless, the opportunities.

And so to the end 
Wanting not peace, 
But comprimise. 

We sing and we shout and we dance and we cry, 
Knowing not why 

Our brothers and neighbours journey to die. 
We sigh. 

We mate as sniffing dogs, 

Without love. 

Our leaders following each other's tails, 

Do nothing. 

We hate without rancour. 

To sate our feeble minds. 

We love and we hate, although it's too late 
For reprieve. 

For soon comes an end, and no longer we lend 
Our beliefs. 

To die as we live, 
Full of hate, 
Never great? 
Always too late? 
To believe? 

We strut and we growl, and occasionally howl 
Of our prowess and victory, 
Most of us never move into love, 
And mentally are never quite free. 

Social convention seals us in, 

We fight for nothing we see 

We give up the war, we could never win, 

No, we can never be free.

... it runs my life, 

I follow in its tracks, 

Never stopping 

Never pausing 

Never going in reverse, 

Constantly crashing forward. 

"With Progress?" 

That is the question. 

Questions are all alike 

In that they can be asked 

But never answered. 

He says "What's the hour?" 

And gets "Ten o'clock" for an answer. 

Who is he that can claim that to be the truth? 

Who is he that can claim to have the solution; 

The answer; 

That long-awaited flow of words 

Which will end your problems. 

He is but a cavitated mind, 

Bending with time 

To do no good.

The following autobiographical essay was judged the 
best of all submission in Mr. Troubetzkoy's first set, 
Third Form Ancient History class: 


These were troubled times. Though only a boy, I 
was thrown into the titanic struggle between Greece 
and Persia. 

I was born in 508 B.C. My home city was Athens 
in the Greek city state of Attica. Pherodias, my 
father, was one of the 700 magistrates of Athens. 

I was formally accepted into my father's house- 
hold after he had inspected me for the customary 
first fortnight of my life. It was a religious cere- 
mony, and during it I received my name, Herocles. 
The first three years of my life were devoid of fear, 
sorrow or pain. During the next three years, I did 
nothing but amuse myself with games and partici- 
pate in sports. 

A new chapter of my life started after my sixth 
birthday. I was put into a school and strictly reared. 
In the first ten years at that school, I was flogged 
many times. My curriculum had three divisions — 
writing, music and gymnastics. I was best at gym- 
nastics, followed closely by music and then writing. 
I learned to swim, race, and hurl the javelin. In 
music I was taught how to play the lyre. I was quite 
good at reading and writing, but hopeless at arith- 
metic though we used the same letters as numbers. 

Even during my first year at school, I had had a 
paedagogos. A paedogogos is a slave whose job is 
to accompany his master to and from his master's 
school. I remember one instance in my childhood. 
It happened when I was only eight years old. I was 
coming home at the end of my school day with my 
slave following. Suddenly, I was jumped by a vil- 
lanous man. My faithful slave immediately came 
and rescued me from the man and carried me home 

By the time I was sixteen, I had finished my 
school years. During the next two years, I paid 
special attention to physical exercise and develop- 
ment, as fitting me in some measure for my tasks 
in war. I raced, wrestled and hunted. On special 
occasions I was able to drive chariots and hurl the 
javelin. Much of my training was done in publicly 
owned gymnasiums and palaestra. 

On my eighteenth birthday, I was enrolled into 
the ranks of Athen's soldier youth called the ephe- 
bo. Under elected moderators, I was trained in the 
duties of citizenship and war. I lived and worked 
together with other epheboi. We received an im- 
pressive uniform of which I was very proud and kept 
in good repair. 

The epheboi had organized a government, on the 
model of our cities. We even had jurors and magis- 
trates. There was an assembly identical to the 
one held in the Pnyx (a natural amphitheatre). We 
were all members and had the right to speak, if we 
could hold an audience. This usually excluded the 
younger. There was a smaller council whose job 
was to help the assembly in getting things done. 


They made an agenda for the assembly. In my city's 
government there was a similar committee con- 
sisting of five hundred men, fifty from each tribe in 
Attica. The men had to be over thirty years in age 
and could stay in the committee a maximum of two 
years. In our own government, we had an inner 
council which, in effect, administered the epheboi. 

This was an exact replica of the Prytany. The 
Prytany consisted of fifty men who took the every 
day decisions for the welfare of Attica. Very soon 
my fate, and the rest of Attica, would be in their 

It happened during my first year in the epheboi.

freedom and become part of his empire. He sent 
heralds to Athens. When they arrived they demanded 
that we should give a tribute of earth and water to 
Darius. We were greatly insulted, and threw the 
heralds into a deep pit and suggested that they 
collect their own earth. 

Immediately upon receiving this insult Darius 
sent a fleet of six hundred tririmes and a large army 
under two generals, Datis and Artophernes, to gain 
revenge. Not realizing the impending danger, the 
Persians were to land their army on the plain of 
managed Marathon, not twenty three miles from the 

With the enemy suddenly on our own soil, we 
awoke to the danger. In an instant of hurried last 
minute planning the Prytany on our strategy decided 
on tactics. Quickly Miltiades, who had been gover- 
nor of a Thracian city, and, as such, knew the 
Persians' tactics, urged the generals in the Prytany 
to take the offensive. They accepted his tactics and 
ordered every able bodied man to take up arms and 
protect Athens. Naturally, this included the epheboi 
and we were eager to prove ourselves in battle. 

Quickly we marched overland to the plain and 
took up our positions, not three quarters of a mile 
from the Persian front. Callimachus, the senior 
officer, organized our ranks so that in the battle 
the centre would be pushed back and the flanks 
would be able to cut off a large body of the Persians 
from their fleet. I was stationed at the rear of the 
left flank and was armed with a short sword 
and shield. Although we had no support of cavalry 
or archers the order was given and away we went. 
The Persians were exceedingly amazed by this, 
for they thought we were all rushing to our death, 
like mad men. In the battle that followed, the 
Persians, true to Callimachus' word, pushed our 
centre back, and, I along with the test of the left 
flank, fell upon the Persians and massacred them. 
Of the twenty thousand Persians that came to the 
plain, only fourteen thousand sailed away in defeat, 
back to Persia. Of the ten thousand men, only one 
hundred and ninety two were killed. During the 
height of the battle, I was cut down the thigh by a 
Persian, but I returned with a deadly blow to the 
head. From then on, I carried a scar on my thigh, of 
which I was immensely proud. The men who gave 
their lives to the safety of Athens, were given the 
highest possible honour, burial on the battlefield. 

We paraded around Athens the following day. A 
large banquet was held in the victors' honour, and 

plays and songs were made in honour of the oc- 

After all the victory celebrations, 1 returned to 
the epheboi and continued my training. On many 
occasions we attended plays and festivals held in 
the theatre of Dionysus, and took part in many re- 
ligious ceremonies. Exactly a year after the battle 
of Marathon, I took part in a relay torch from the 
city of Piraeus to Athens, a distance of four and a 
half miles. It was run at night, and I was the last 
man in our team. My track would take me across the 
finish line. My man arrived, being in second place. 
He flung the torch to me, and I took up in pursuit 
of my opponent. It was very tight at the finish line, 
but I managed to beat my opponents out and place 
first. For quite a time, I was greatly honoured by 
my friends. My training in the epheboi had been con- 
cluded, and on my 21st birthday, I was admitted into 
full citizenship of my city. 

During the first year of my full citizenship, I 
became vested in the ways of our society. I at- 
tended the assemblies and festivals as much as I 
could. In my twenty third year, I was a contestant 
in the Panhellenic Games held at the Olympiad. 

After many trials and eliminations, I was se- 
lected to represent Attica in the four hundred yard 
race at the Olympiad. After this, I began the months 
of vigorous training under professional gymnasts. 
When my training had been completed, I went to 
the Olympiad and was examined by the officials. 
We then took an oath to observe all the rules. 

When the last of the Pilgrims had arrived we 
started the ceremonies. The first day was full of 
religious ceremonies. On the third day of the fes- 
tivals my contestants and I was led into the sta- 
dium. As we entered, a herald read our names out 
and the city that entered us. All the races were 


led into the stadium. All the races were done in 
the nude. In my event, I placed third. The winner 
received a prize of an olive garland. In the fifth 
day, the herald announced the winner of each event 
and the city that the winner represented. Although 
I didn't win, I was still honoured by my friends, aad 
from that day onwards, I was assured of a seat at 
the Olympiad. 

In the chariot races an Athenian placed first. 
He was given many benefits. Odes and songs were 
composed for him, statues would be raised in his 
honour, and he could neglect his taxes. 

During the next few years, I tried my hand at 
many jobs, hoping that I would find one that would 
be able to sustain me for the rest of my life. 

At one time, I was part of the chorus of one of 
Aeschylus' plays. I played the lyre to refresh the 
audience before new scenes would begin. But this 
job did not last for long. Aeschylus was an un- 
pleasant man, hard to get along with. Very soon 
afterwards, I was employed by Phidias, a sculptor. 
I helped Phidias get his sculpture materials 
(usually white marble) and entertained his models 
so that they would not be bored at posing with my 
lyre. Phidias was a good man , modest and always 
cheerful. I enjoyed my job with him immensely, but 
in my 26th year Persia wrecked my plans. 

Ever since we had defeated Persia on the plain 
of Marathon , Darius had been full of revenge. Slowly 
and carefully he made his plans for invasion. Darius 
died before he could execute them, but Xerxes, his 
son, carried out his father's plans. 

Only one man fully understood Persia's threat. 
This man was Themistocles. He urged Athens to 
build a fleet of triremes to defend our trade routes 

By the fall of 481 B.C., Xerxes had finished 
massing his army and navy, and started on his long 
march to Athens! With a total of two million, six 
hundred and forty one thousand men and twelve 
hundred ships in all, Xerxes started his march con- 
fident of victory. 

Our first defense was a stand at the Pass of 
Thermoplyae, but after the Spartans' force of three 
hundred men had heroically kept the whole Persian 
army at bay for three days, a villian came to Xerxes 
and offered to lead the Persians through a secret 
pass. Quickly Xerxes' army overran the Spartans. 
There were only two survivors. 

Realizing that there was nothing to bar the way 
of the Persians from Athens, the Prytany pro 
claimed that every man should save his family as 
best he could. I was soon enlisted as a crewmember 
in the fleet, which had returned from a victory at 
Artenisium. We filled our ship with as many men, 
women and children as it could hold, and set sail 
for the Island of Salamis, making the evacuation of 
Athens complete. 

Soon after we had landed out human cargo on the 
Island of Salamis, the Persian fleet, twelve hundred 
strong, appeared. We had little over three hundred 
triremes. Themistocles, our admiral, sent a trusted 
slave to Xerxes, to urge him to attack before we 
were supposedly going to sail away. By the next 



morning, all exits from the Island were blocked by 
Xerxes' fleet. We were now compelled to fight our 
way out. 

We organized ourselves in two neat lines, par- 
allel to the beach. I was on the left of our centre. 
We had a very able bodied and shrewd man for our 
captain; his name was Aristocles. We waited. Sud- 
denly the Persian fleet appeared. I was awestruck 
by its immense size. Our fleet was about to resist 
one of the largest armadas the world had seen. The 
Persians began their arc around a promontory, not 
realizing that the channel narrowed at this point. 
In the next few minutes, the Persians, orderly ranks 
had turned into wild confusion. We saw our chance 
and attacked. 

I worked the catapults. Methodically, I armed 
the catapult with burning tar, aimed, and fired. 
Again and again I did this. Soon we were in amongst 

the enemy. The grappling irons were thrown out and 
we boarded the Persian ship.. Quickly we over- 
whelmed the hands on the deck and set the ship 
ablaze. We did this to two other boats before we 
rammed. I swam ashore and watched the battle. 
Soon victory was ours, and Xerxes who had been 
watching this battle from the throne, set up at the 
foot of Mt. Aegaleus, left the scene in disgust. 
Leaving three hundred thousand men, Xerxes mar- 
ched back to Persia in disgust. 

Though I didn't take part in the battle, the 
Spartans gained a tremendous victory at Plataea. 
The Spartans lost fifteen hundred fifty nine men, 
and the Persians two hundred sixty thousand. 

I am very proud to say that I took part in the 
battle of Marathon and Salamis, which was a truly 
great honour, and played an active role in rebuilding 
glorious Athens.

The severed head 
Of time lies dead, 
On pavement red 
With blood it shed. . . 
Its meaning fled. 

The funeral pyre 
Is piled higher 
Defaced with mire 
From struggles dire. . . 
And God retires. 

• • • 

Reality and truth we're sought and taught, 
Though never clearly seeing what 
Is real and true. . . . 
And what is not. . . . 

It's not been long 
Since right and wrong 
Did once belong 
To ethics strong. . . . 
But these are gone. 

And man still tries 
But fails to buy 
Or find the ties 
Of life's great lie. . . . 
But cannot cry.

A hair-strung dagger hangs 

Suspended for all men to see, 
Foreboding o'oer a burdened king. . . 

But we disdain to feel the pain 

Of those who lie 

Impaled by him 
On one 
Beneath his righteous throne. 

And we abhor 
The death in war, 
Yet call for more 
Of blood and gore. . . 
Behind closed doors. 

We seek renown 
For foes we've downed 
Submit to crowns 
Which have been found 
Upon the ground. 

Once having writ, the finger hurries on 
To spread the word of our depravity, 
And though with crystal clarity it writes, 
We turn away, and do not heed 
Its warning to a doomed humanity. 

Benumbled with drink, 
We fear to think 
We're on the brink, 
And soon shall sink. 
From truth we shrink. 

What will remain 
When all who claim 
To still be sane 
Have died in pain? 
Who will we blame?

A Barnacle is a weed that clings 
To certain people, to certain things; 
He is dirt and they are kings; 
With the kings he really swings. 
He is in. 

Doesn't matter what they say 
He'll repeat it every day. 
He apes them in every way. 
He doesn't work, he doesn't pray. 
He is suave. 

The people watching this go on 
From day to night, from night to dawn 
Laugh and scorn the puny pawn; 
The curtains on his life are drawn. 
He is exposed. 

In the end, to lose his grips, 
The water from the Barnacle grips 
But the King's own words hang on his lips; 
Left behind, he runs and trips 
He is hopeless.

Soft words aren't easy 
And seen too common

But the good they do 
Cannot be measured.

The winner loses 

The loser turns 

That's the way it's turnin'. 

It's a matter of man. 

But its a way of life, of progress, and of the aging.

As I see it is a few.

It's all going round, following the track;

The nearby countryside was bathed in the serene 
half-darkness of twilight. I merely had been out for 
a stroll when I found that my feet kept turning to- 
wards the church, and when I found myself at its 
door, I entered hesitantly. At first I was not at all 
surprised by its appearance; this was merely a 
church which needed to have its light turned on. 
But then, because I was tired, I sat down. 

It was not long before I noticed the silence. A 
rather weird sensation I thought, in a room which, 
during the services was never totally quiet. There 
was always somebody ruining the peacefulness with 
a sneeze or a cough. The stillness began to bother 
me; I did not like it at all. Suddenly, my ears felt 
heavy, as though they would drop off. The silence 
itself seemed to be pushing at them from all direc- 
tions. I felt as though my head had been placed in 
a vice. 

As the room darkened furtherl became frightened. 
No longer did the dust particles cheerfully danc^ 
in the beams of bright sunlight, which streamed 
across the floor. Now the windows could barely be 
distinguished from the surrounding walls. 

The silence now took turns assailing me. I was 
almost writhing in fear and agony. I wanted to leave, 

but somehow I was frozen in my seat. My heart had 
raised itself from the middle of my chest to a point 
somewhere in the' back of my throat and the blood 
beat a kind of war-dance in my ears. 

I have often heard of people spending horrifying 
nights in wax museums, but I was sure that they 
could not know what real terror was like. I was 
further frightened when I realized that the actual 
cause of my fear was indefinable. If it was the 
silence and darkness, why could I not stand up? I 
felt like shouting something. Even a whisper would 
do, but I could not. My head was reeling, as though 
through lack of air. My eyesight, already dimmed by 
the natural dusk, seemed to disappear in an instant. 
I felt limp and I desperately wished it would all 
end soon. 

My eyes were suddenly blinded by a painful flash 
of light. I covered my face with my hands. Some- 
body was stabbing me; I was sure of it. But little 
by little, I began to realize that the lights had been 
turned on. The sound- shattering silence was broken 
as a server walked up to the altar to light the can- 
dles for the evening service. I was so relieved, I 
felt like crying. I looked at my watch, and with 
incredulity found that this had all happened in the 
space of a few minutes. I left the church hastily.

I walked alone amidst the tranquil wood, 

My nostrils filled with the scent of maple and of 
And to me came the thought of good 

And evil, done by men who whine 
For friendship and peace, yet seek 

It out by way, hatred and by death, 
And only make themselves more weak, 

Draining from them the very life and breath. 
But here am I, where peace ever reigns, 

Broken only by the birds, and the quiet rustle 
Of leaves and distant falling rain, 

While the busy outside world bustles. 
The air no scent of hatred carries, 

Yet to think this would be a misconception. 
The small brown sparrow only tarries 

To give its only home, its nest, protection, 
Not because in its mind it has fear of foe, 

But because instinct commands its will 
And when instinct says it's safe to go, 

It flies to some nearby branch, until 

The earth is filled with the splendour of the Moon. 
But now, on my mind, the petty troubles of the 
world all swoon. 

As I walk on, the cry of some lonely loon 

Resounds from the trees and echoes in the 
A crimson curtain the horizon does assume, 
And the heat of the day has, long since, 
Been forgotten. The cobwebs look like dazzling 
Strung across the path, as they catch and reflect 
The last rays which the disappearing sun hurls 

Across the carpet of the sky that is now be- 
coming flecked 
With stars. And now my bare feet 

Do tire. I now no longer think of strife. 
The woods cry out, and I leap and run to meet 
Its arms — I'm lost in Nature's life.

Strength thinks challenger craves simple shadows,

Her relationship shames power for a soldier's

Wallowing in the glowing simulated flutter of the 

terrible bomb. 
Balladeer mounted, tilts the troika of camel 

pregeantry — quests —

The ornate animal execrated by the rare quart 

raised from devastating hilt of glimmering grime. 

Apprehension bases boardwalk on pretense of weird 

Can sanction amplify cloth and cloud of drudgery? 
Drag the fable — haven over 
Brahms leathers Tchaikowsky, chanting battles of 

imagery crying 

Pain, Passion. 

Rattle love, love loathe wrought as handle of theme, 

And blind overture sign, No! 

The creamy gimmick of green and blue ecstasy 

Sample of pelican for hire; 

No prime, shawl on table, deep damp sea gasps, 

Pleasant pine, pine for twitch of coronation. 

Feeble break, cramp diplomacy depresses flam- 
boyant fantasy 

Who laces the bird hangar. 

She creates the life cubicle to squeeze, diminish,

The sun streamed down, making the swollen 
river look less grim. The trees began to lose the 
drops of moisture on their leaves as the sun's heat 
made the water evaporate and rise up as steam 
through the foliage of the dense jungle. 

A sleek jaguar came to the riverside and looked 
with distaste at the swollen body of a drowned cow, 
which was being prevented from going downstream 
by the trunk of a tree that had fallen into the river. 
The big cat looked upstream and saw floating with 
its stomach to the sky, a grotesque body of one of 
the "man-things" from the village upstream. Per- 
haps the "man-things" had suffered badly from the 
storm last night. 

The birds had begun to realize that death had 
gone with the night, and had begun to sing their 
ageless songs to the heavens. Here and there one 
might find a nest on its side and below, the little 
birds lying dead on the ground, already half-eaten 
by ants. 

Farther up the river the '"man-things" of the 
jaguar were beginning to crawl off their roofs to 
find out who was dead and what sort of sacrifice 
the gods wanted now. There was no doubt that the 

gods were angry. It was probably because of that 
strange white-man, who was always telling them to 
worship a man who was killed on a cross. 

The flood waters had receded till they were only 
ankle deep in the village. The children laughed and 
played in the water while their parents tried to 
restore order out of the chaos that the tropical 
storm had left. There were many dead chickens lying 
about. In one of the huts was the body of a woman 
who had been pregnant and thus had been unable 
to climb up on the roof of her hut. In another was 
the body of a very old man who had been about to 
die anyway. In the centre of the village had stood 
a tall mahogany tree. This had been blown down 
and in falling had killed the strange white man. 

Back in the jungle all was calm and peaceful. 
Nature had accepted the storm as a part of herself, 
and had got rid of those weak ones who were not 
strong enough to battle the elements and live. 

The jaguar stretched elegantly and turned away 
from the river to look for his breakfast. The night 
of terror was over; the storm had gone. 

R. Montano (Form VI-M) 


I suppose that marriage is one of those events 
that, like becoming a wage -earner or a father, is 
the final major of the formative years, or the first 
years, or the years of maturity. Like the other two, 
marriage presupposes independence, responsibility, 
and achievement. The best age to marry, therefore, 
is not an actual numerical value of time spent on 
earth, but a state of mind reached. 

Marriage is coldly dissected by scientists and 
psychologists, basically wellmeant or otherwise, 
who break it into various dry components. We all 
must fit within these compartments, or are, I sus- 
pect, ignored. The actual physical act of marriage 
is rapidly losing its spiritual significance, not 
because it is supposedly facing the exposing blasts 
of modern logic, but because it has been arbitrarily 
judged archaic by men, who, with their education, 
should know better. 

Sex, played for better or for worse, is now the 
aspect of spiritual union. I am told now that if my 
wife and I have unhappy sex relationships, I will 
invariably suffer a disastrous marriage. After learn- 
ing these clinical facts, as well as many more, I 
now believe that I have found the best age at which 
to marry; that is the age when one is able to ignore 
everything he knows is foolish or unnecessary for 
a happy marriage. 

One may ask why a late, or "mature" marriage 
is not my idea of idealism. The answer has two 

parts; one is that one may mature at twenty, another, 
possibly not until he reaches thirty. The age is 
certainly not static. Second, a couple not married 
until thirty have, in my estimation, lost the most 
wonderful growing-up period, the time in which the 
dependence and rashness of youth are discarded in 
favour of decision and freedom. Both will still re- 
tain youth's ability to enjoy simply and without 
social restraint the lesser things, and the cares of 
later life, everything from gray hair to marital dis- 
cord over finance, will not have had a chance to 
harry their lives. 

Marriage may be a mere biological realization, a 
necessity, or a duty, but it also constitutes the 
finest friendship two humans may realize. It is a 
solemn agreement, but it is never dull. Marriages, 
as some never learn, do not "happen". They are, as 
happy unions, the visible sign of tolerance, trust 
and respect. Although I have been learning for a 
mere eighteen years, I, too, begin to learn ofmar- 
riage and its rewards. For these reasons, I feel that 
the ideal time for marriage is the moment that a man 
who knows and realizes the actualities of life de- 
cides that he has met and begun to know the girl 
with whom he would most prefer to spend the rest of 
his life; in my mind, the moment that he becomes

At night you get away. 

Away to where you want to go, 

A trip away from daily hell, 

The daily hell you know so well, 

The daily hell you've had to know, 

At night you get away. 

At night you get away. 

And even though you must come back, 

Back from the place where you have been, 

Back to a place of theft and sin, 

Where you are shoved along the track, 

At night you get away. 

At night you get away. 
The night is longer than the day, 
Half a day is still like hell, 
Sifting round from bell to bell, 
Listening to what they have to say, 
At night you get away. 

At night you get away, 

But if you scorn the snarling bell 

A daily demon will follow you 

Doing all that he can do 

To make your night a daily hell 

At night you get away. 

At night you get away, 

Away to where you want to go. 

A trip away from daily hell 

A daily hell you know so well. 

The daily hell you've had to know. 

At night you get away. 

At night you get away. 
The trip is sweet and short. 
Screaming back you come.

Prep Soccer Team 



We started off the season here at B.C.S. by 
having soccer trials; the trials went quite well with 
everybody trying to make the team. I never thought 
that I would make the team, but I did. 

The eventual had to work very hard to become 
better. The hardest part of all the practices was 
heading the ball. Sometimes you would see stars 
and other times, would clonk your nose. 

Our coach was Mr. Guest, who worked very hard 
to make us good players. He deserves a lotof credit 
for this. 

We played our first game in Montreal against 
Selwyn House. We lost nine to nothing and we 
played our second game here against Selwyn House, 
which we lost three to nothing. This meant that we 
give up the Wanstall Cup, which we did sadly.

This year, as usual, hockey was very popular 
in the Prep. There was a special crease for those 
who had not played before so that everybody had a 
chance to enjoy Canada's national sport 

The three teams in our section of the Pee Wee 
League were quite even. When the buzzer went, to 
end the opening in our league, it was a three game 
all tie. It was a very close game, with neither team 
ever getting more than one point ahead 

In the next four games that followed there was a 
lot of good competition, but in the end we came out 
second, trailing St. Pats. 

A lot of fun was to be had on the little rink which 
was situated at the rear of the Prep. Unfortunately, 
because of bad weather, the little rink did not last 

Except for the odd bruise here and there, every 
boy came off the ice in relatively good health.

The wind blew hard 
And the trees bent low.

Our own little rink.

This year the little rink was started later than 
usual. The boards were not put up until after the 
ground had frozen for the winter. The workmen had 
a great deal of difficulty putting them up for this 

The men took sixty per cent of our gravel and 
dumped it on Mr. Hunt's driveway, leaving the rink 
all uneven. Luckily Mr. Guest remedied the uneven- 
ness with the new fire hose. 

Since it rarely stopped snowing for a week, we 
were kept busy shoveling it. The snow now towers 
four to five feet above the boards. 

Mr. Guest usually waters the rink but now that 
he's a busy father he can't be expected to do it so 
we have taken over. I have been fortunate enough to 
water it three times so far. 

A thaw during the first week of February hit the 
rink hard and drained it of two inches of water. The 
rink is now restored and it's as good as ever.

Every month Remove and Form II get to order 
three paperbacks. Each boy gets a folder of that 
month' s issues and checks off what he'd like. Mr. 
Marshall sends away to Ontario and the books arrive 
in two or three weeks. 

Receiving these books is a lot of fun and every- 
one enjoys them immensely. There is a great variety 
from Jokes to Julius Caesar and some educational 
books are included. Each boy is allowed three books 
a month but at the end of term everyone gets three

they increase everyone's vocabulary quite a lot.

The four huts down in the woods are all full this 
year; because of such a small Prep almost everyone 
is in one. 

Each hut has a small wood stove, three or four 
bunks and many shelves. There are usually four to 
six boys in a hut and occasionally a dayboy. 

In the early Spring and late Fall the boys in huts 
are permitted to sleep out in them on Saturday 
nights. They get food from the kitchen and have 
supper and breakfast out. In the winter they are 
allowed to have supper in the huts on Saturday or 
Sunday, but they don't sleep out. 

The huts were made two or three years ago by 
Mr. Guest, Forest Beerworth, the janitor, and some 
of the interested boys. They have shingle on the 
outside walls and tarpaper on the roof. Under the 
floors of two huts polyethelene was tacked to keep 
out the cold air in winter. 

Everyone enjoys the huts and has fun roughing 
it. I don't think some days would be very interesting 
if it wasn't for the huts.

There are four dormitories, but only three are 
being used because of the lack of boys. The dorms 
used are B.C. and D.A. dorm was used when a ski 
team came from Montreal and now the Prep Band is 
practising there. 

Sometimes when the master on duty is in a par- 
ticularly good mood he lets one dorm attack another 
and then there's a riot. Once in a while a brave 
master will attack a dorm single handed, but he 
usually wins. B. dorm has no master beside it, so it 
is kind of free, but C. and D. have a master living 
beside them and they're watched. In the dorms 
everyone has a lot of fun, including the masters.

The huts have been very successful this year. 
There are two Form II huts and two Remove huts. 

Mr. Guest is thinking of putting a morse code set 
between the two Form II huts, because Form II is 
learning about that sort of thing in Science. 

In Hunt's hut Bornstein has been making gadgets 
such as: a window that is raised with a halyard, and 
a fold-up table. 

Hunt's hut has also had a visitor, which was 
first found by Bornstein in the stove. It was a mouse 
trying to make a bed! We tried to catch him but he 
got away. We have had several other visits from him 
(once digging in my mattress) but we have not yet 
caught him.

Lower Canada College arrived Friday night at 
5-30 p.m. That night during prep, they went to see 
the play, Billy Budd, from which they came back 
at 10.00. 

Next morning at 8.30, the two teams were on 
their way to Mount Orford. We thought that it was 
going to be very slushy, because it was warm and 
had rained for the past two days, but when we 
arrived at Orford, the ski conditions were good. The 
snow had been hardened by the wind and rain. 

Mr. Powell (coach of the L.C.C. Team) set up a 
slalom course. We went down it three times and 
made an average of the three. We had to climb up 
after each run down. Ross (L.C.C.) came first, 

Dunn (B.C.S.) came second and Armstrong (L.C.C.) 
came third. 

After the slalom, Mr. Powell set up a giant 
slalom which wasn't much fun because we had to 
climb all the way up. We went down three times 
again and it was averaged off. Chapero (L.C.C) 
came first, Dunn (B.C.S.) came second and Ross 
(L.C.C.) came third. 

In the over-all which was pretty close, Dunn 
came first, Ross, second, and Armstrong third. 

After the competition was over, Mr. Powell 
brought us up the big T-bar, down "Forty-five"

This year has been a lucky one for the Animal 
Kingdom. Various masters have got some pets. 

Mr. Guest's well known Tigger is a bright young 
dog, who has learned a few tricks. One of them was 
to take a note from Mr. Guest, which had the name 
of his favourite dog biscuit on it, upstairs to Mrs. 

Mr. Marshall's cats named Merry and Pippin, 
have leanred to go outside by way of boards which 
Mr. Marshall put on the side of the building. 

Mr. Hunt's dog, Prince, just goes around making 
puddles, while Ian Hunt works furiously to clean 
them up. 

Mrs. Fisher's dog, Buddy, is well known and a 
great favourite in the Prep. He knows almost every 
trick there is to be known and he's very intelligent. 

Altogether the Prep, is lucky to have all these 
animals and everyone likes them.

This year we have an organized model club. At 
the beginning of the year, there was no set room for 
making the models, but later the old Form I form 
room was set aside for ir. 

There is a monitor (myself) for the club to keep 
rascals out. There is a great variety of models from 
monsters to funny looking Pop Singers. The best 
model painter so far this year is Torres, who built 
and painted a fewHot Rod monsters. Quite a few old 
sailing ships with rigging have been brought and a 
number of planes have been built. 

To get into the club all you have to do is to 
have a model and work on it. If you don't have a 
model you're not allowed in the room. The club has 
not had as much enthusiasm as last term, but I'm 
sure it will increase.

This year the choir has been very successful. 
Sometime after the Easter Holidays, we are going to 
sing in Montreal and -go to North Hatley. I started 
off the season, not too keen about joining, but when 
I heard we were going on trips, I joined. 

At Thanksgiving, we had a service and our 
parents came down to watch us. From then on we 
have been practising for our other carol service for 

The Christmas carol service went off with a 
bang. It was all by candle light and no lights were 
shone. One boy from each form read a lesson after 
much practising. 

After the service, we went out while our parents 
left. We came out with presents for Mrs . Bell, the 
organist, Mrs. Brady, the matron and Mr. Cruikshank, 
the choir master. 

We have made great progress this year and now 
we can learn a psalm in eighteen minutes and have 
it ready for the Sunday service. 

We have choir practises on Monday, Friday and 
Sunday nights after suppe r. Two Prep masters are 
in the choir, Mr. Ferris and Mr. Marshall. 

Well, I hope you have leamt something about our 
choir now.

As Jim crept cautiously through the undergrowth, 
dark, slow-moving clouds were beginning to cover 
the moon. Beads of sweat stood out on the boy's 
forehead. It would soon be sompletely dark, and he 
was alone. 

Gradually, he became aware of a soft, wailing 
noise. It grew louder and louder. Terrified, he began 
to run blindly through the bush! He did not know 
where he was going, but continued running! He did 
not realize it, but the wailing sound was fading. 

Suddenly, he tripped over a root and laythere, 
panting, with cuts everywhere on his face, hands, 
and legs. His clothing was ruined, but he lay on the 
wet ground, shaking, and shivering as if cold. But 
he was not cold, he could not be cold in that steam- 
ing, hot jungle. 

He could hear the wailing in the distance, but 
did not run; he could not run because his legs and 
body were so utterly exhausted that he could not 
move. His exhausted limbs were being revitalized 
as he fell into a deep sleep. 

When he woke up, he was very stiff and tired 
and ached all over. He raised his head slowly and 
saw a young girl standing about ten feet away from 
him in a small clearing.. Very slowly he rose to his 
feet and stumbled towards her. As he drew closer, 
his eyes seemed to deceive him, so that it looked 
as if she was changing. She grew larger, her ears 
grew long and pointed, and her feet changed into 

Suddenly, the bushes began to burn! He looked 
puzzled and she opened her mouth to laugh. Instead 
a wailing sound came out! 

Only then did he realize where he was and who 
she was.

Mr. Marshall gave us time in his Grammar Class to 
write compositions, and this was the best one. 


1. The Blackboard is not always bare, 
But full, 

Of things we hate. 

2. O look you feel and see and want, 
But not always understand. 

3. A room once entered by the door 

Is not as dull as from whence you came. 

4. It falls upon the ground 
Upon the dead, 

And we are filled with joy. 

5. Darker, Darker, Night is here 
Day rests, 

We rest, rest, sleep.

Not a cry was heard, nor a shout for help, 
As the boy down the hall went slowly: 
He knew his hide was sure to be tanned, 
So he put in an old tin plate. 

His face looked full of sorrow, 
His eyes looked wrought with grief, 
But his heart was full of laughter 
When he thought of the old tin plate. 

"In there", the master pointed 
Swinging his cane behind him. 
Then came the command "Bend over!" 
And he braced himself for the shock. 

The arm's shadow slowly lifted, 
And the cane began the descent, 
But the master saw the bulge 
And quickly took it out. 

He really got it then! 
(Six of the best I think,) 
And he cried like never before, 
And, he lost his old tin plate!

This is some topic to write about. First of all, 
I think I should like best to write about dear old 
Mister Hunt and describe him. 

Mister Hunt is the Headmaster of the Prepratory 
School here at B.C.S. He teaches Grades Six and 
Seven, and in the summer he teaches summer school 
at "The Grove" in Lakefield. In his classes he 
teaches literature, spelling, reading and emphasizes 
the fact that Arithmetic is the most vital subject in 
School today. He has the Remove classroom divided 
into two parts. One group is a smart section, and the 

other . ls well, you had better ask Mr. Hunt 

that, in case I give you the wrong impression. He 
has an excellent sense of humour and has a great 
patience with his pupils and also understands boys' 
minds very much. Mister Hunt will not cane, but 
give you fair chance and warning if a boy does a 

misdeed; but when he does cane Oh boy! 

he's the hardest canerin the Prep. 

To end this story about Mr. Hunt, I must quote 
three of his pet expressions. One, "Now Mann, will 
you do me a double imposition on why I should not 
act the ass all the time". Two, "Cor Blimey, boy! 
When I was your age, I was five times worse off." 
Three, You never had it so good, you softies!"

Off the two main buildings of Bishop's College 
School, lies a small, three story building surrounded 
by a road. By the back door stands a bell which is 
used to call students in. The Prep may not look like 
much but, remember the interior. 

Inside there is much laughter and talking. Take 
Remove form room for instance, a very modern well 
kept room. There are boys that look smart and are 
all dressed alike. The Prep teaches students for 
the Upper School. 

Don't woory there is very much discipline for all 
the students. Also there is the cane for the undis- 

Of course since it is only the Prep we can't go 
to town. However there is more fun time than the 
students in Third Form get. But it all goes by fast 
and when I walk around the building, it seems to 
grow smaller and the inside seems bigger. 

If you stop and think, the Prep gets away with 
more things than the Upper School, more ice time 
for example. Altogether the Prep's a great place.

As I stood outside the huge bull fighting ring, 
which looked like a gigantic bowl, the people 
crowded around the wall, its gate, waiting to enter. 
The people piled out of their cars very quickly and 
soon there was not a parking space to be had. 

The sun shone brightly and there was no wind 
or cloud anywhere around the ring. The fact that 
there was no wind was really good because there 
would be nothing to move the bull fighters cape. 

Suddenly, the great gates were flung open, the 
tickets were collected and the multitude poured in. 
The colourful crowd doubled in number by the min- 
ute. As I gazed from side to side in the arena, I 
noticed that the sun brought out all the colourful 
dresses that the people were wearing and it re- 
minded me of an abstract painting. After half an 
hour not a seat was left in the arena. 

Soon afterwards the great gates shut with a loud 
clank of iron crashing against cement. Silence fell 
upon the crowd and two riders came out on horse- 
back, one of them had a large key which meant that 
the arena had been opened for the day. Following 
this procession, two matadors entered the ring and 
made their way to the side arena where they bowed 
to the President. 

Now the time had come, the horns and drums 
were sounded and immediately, a majestic black 
bull sprang out from behind the gates, with the 
speed of a bullet. As the bull turned a "peon" 
which in English means a metador's helper, stepped 
out and the bull instantly charged him. The peon 
made a natural pass. The matador stepped out to 
fight the majestic animal, the bull charged him and 
calmly the matador put his cape at his side, the bull 
charged again, but this time the matador was on one 
knee, he looked as if he did not have a care in the 
world, the bull roared by, and the crowd shouted 
"Ole! Ole!" Many more successful passes were 
made, then the horns and drums were sounded again, 
which meant that it was time to change acts. Now a 
man walked into the ring with some "Banderillos", 
which are sharpened sticks for spearing the bull. 

As soon as the bull saw him, he charged and the 
man also charged the bull, and it looked as if they 
were going to crash together. The man stepped 
aside, he stuck the banderillos into the bull with 
great dexterity, and the crowds cheered loudly. This 
act was repeated two more times. 

The third act consisted of Lucky Horse with 
armed riders. The horses' eyes were covered and 
their stomachs were padded heavily to prevent the 
horse from being wound'ed. The rider would stab 
the bull with his spear to make him weak. 

The bull caught sight of one of the horses and 
charged with all his might and almost knocked the 
rider off his horse, but the rider managed to spear 
the bull and thus the bull was weakened from loss 
of blood. It swayed from side to side as the blood 
poured out on to the ground from his deep wounds, 
but it still attacked anything around him that moved. 

The fourth act was now about to happen, the 
horns and drums were sounded and a matador came 
out with a small cape, and made his way to the side 
of the ring, where he knelt in waiting for the bull. 
After waiting for a minute or so, the bull charged 
with what strength he had left, for a moment the 
matador looked as if he would not move, but he did 
when the bull was within inches of him. The bull 
turned and charged again, and the matador made a 
beautiful back pass. He bent his body with great 
ease and style as he made the pass, the crowd 
cheered very loudly, and the master bowed. 

Then the time came to put an end to the bull. 
The matador had a sword under his cape for the kill. 
He made a few more passes, then he charged the 
exhausted bull with a drawn sword; the matador 
swayed from side to side to get a better aim. Every- 
one was silent and anxious to see the animal's 
miseries ended. The matador made a direct hit and 
the blood poured out the bull's nose and he was 
dead in a minute, and the bull fighter won fame and

On February 26th, 1966, the School lost a good 
man. After forty years of service, first in the Upper 
School, and for the last dozen years in the Prep., 
Ted Thorne died. 

My oldest memories of him are as mail-man, for 
in those days no truck was needed, as now, to bring 
the School's mail up from the post office. Ted 
wheeled it in a little cart, and in winter dragged it 
on a sleigh. Some of us remember how the brass 
newel posts on the main staircase used to shine 

under his powerful case; old Prep boys remember 
the odd word of wisdom that cheered them up or 
eased a crisis. We all remember the ready cheery 
greeting; typical: We met on the Long Bridge one 
sweltering June day, his jacket finger. hooked over 
his shoulder. "Afternoon sir! This climate! today 
on the bridge we're holding our coats; a few weeks 
ago it was our ears." 
A good man.

It was shocking how precise and almost infal- 
lible the weaving and spinning machines of the 
Domil Fabric Company were. In the past fabric 
production it was found necessary to keep the fac- 
tories very humid and almost insufferably hot. This 
was to prevent fibres from breaking. Now there are 
only certain enclosed areas which are kept under 
such conditions. 

Great numbers of people used to be employed 
just to spend the day keeping one small area, per- 
haps twenty square feet, clear of discarded thread, 
cloth or fibres. Now this somewhat useless job is 
performed automatically. A system of blowers on 
the floors force all wastes to a path between the 
machines. Then a vacuum on overhead rails swoops 
about and keeps the floors spotless. 

Even more unbelievable is the fact that people 
no longer have to perform the terrifically tedious 
jobs of tying broken threads. In the Domil factory 
the machines stop whenever a thread breaks, thus 
saving the ruin of the cloth. Futhermore another 
machine hums over and, completely unguided, de- 
tects and reties the broken thread and tops this 
off by starting the system going again. All this 
takes the time required to light a cigarette. 

All this may build up to make you as a human 
feel inferior. You may also think that there must be 
a large number of people out of wotk because of all 
the machines. One must take into consideration the 
number of people employed in growing, building, 

exploiting and supervising as well as supplying the 
various components that are necessary to run Domil 


Perhaps the word meticulous would best des- 
cribe the attitude of the "Rand". Everyone tries 
not merely to carry out his duties but strives to- 
ward a common goal, a perfect product. The way 
the staff went about fabricating the perfect product 
was fascinating. 

The function of the company is along similar, 
but far more grandiose, lines than the Union Screen 
Plate Company. The Rand's specialty is in the 
form of pumps of all forms and classifications. They 
build these to suit the client's needs and if the 
product needs special equipment, they build that 
too. This firm devotes an entire department to tool 
making. If some small part is needed there are num- 
erous huge warehouse-like storerooms keeping 
bought parts. These storerooms would make any 
hardware store look very inadequate in comparison. 

The working conditions are very pleasant, for 
the workers may take frequent breaks and refresh 
themselves at a nearby stockade of vending 

Thereis a large area with complicated equipment 
which is used to test all outgoing machines. Thus 
any fluctuation in quality jeopardizes the worker's 
chance for future employment with the Rand.

The episcopal ring of Bishop J. W. Williams, an 
early Headmaster, and the ring and pectoral cross 
of Bishop L.W. Williams, his son, an Old Boy of the 
School, who were Bishops of Quebec, have been 
placed in a case on the Gospel side of the sanc- 
tuary. These gifts and their placing in our chapel 
were made possible by the Reverend Canon Stanley 
Williams, Rector of Shawinigan, the son of Bishop 
Lennox Williams, and an Old Boy as well. 

Mr. Armstrong continues to look after the daily 
care of the chapel, and Mrs. Brady and her staff 
oversees the cassocks and surplices. Mrs. Large 
has been in charge of the altar linens and flowers, 
and she and Mrs. Campbell, with other masters' 
wives, have arranged the special decorations at 
Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

Servers this year have been J. Burbidge I, H. Kent 
and M. Skutezy I, and the sidemen chosen each 
Sunday from the School officers have been super- 
vised by Mr. Troubetzkoy. 

Every member of the school has been involved 
in the services of the Chapel, so in the end we see 
that in this part of the School's life, every member 
of the School has taken part. 


(Continued from Page 31) 

the two being written in 80 minute segments one 
morning last March. The PeterHolt Memorial Library 
never was the scene of more intense concentration. 

The results justified the effort. The official 
team score, made up of the best three scores in the 
School, was very greatly improved over last year's 
initial effort. As well, there were some excellent 
individual performances. Among the 1019 Quebec 
contestants, Burbidge I stood 54th, and Miller I, 
68th. The rest of the Team placed in the top 40% 
of the field in two contest examinations that are 
very difficult. (In 17 years of International Contests, 
written by perhaps 7,000,000 high school students 
in that time, only about 100 have had perfect 
papers.) The Team members were: Burbidge I, 
Barry I, Brooks, Drury, Fleming, Jorre, Miller I, 
Stairs and Phillips. The scores of Burbidge I, 
Miller I and Stairs comprised the School's official 
team score in the International Contest. 

Each Club member this year was a subscriber 
to the Mathematics Student Journal, published by 
the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics 
in the United States. Also in an international vein, 
it is hoped that, next year, the Club can became one 
of the very few Canadian affiliates of the above- 
mentioned Mu Alpha Theta, membership in which 
brings some valuable benefits. 



(Continued from Page 49) 

As the days went by, Veillon committed a mis- 
demeanour, and, to punish him, Mr. Bedard ordered 
him to polish the House Cross Country Trophy 
after lights-out. While Veillon was busy at this 
task, Mr. Bedard quickly brought his camera out 
of his pocket and snapped a picture. Only then did 
he wail, "Aye-yi, my flash, she come off in my 
pocket!" It is difficult to say who spent the more 
rueful evening, Veillon or Mr. Bedard. 

It was as the exams were approaching that Jones 
I decided that Grier House was better-suited to 
study than School, and arranged a trade for Ander, 
who left our walls. 

As had the first, the second term was soon past, 
and now the third and final portion of the year was 
upon us. 

April showers may be predominant during the 
first weeks of the third term, but it was the plumbing 
above them, not spring rains, that flooded out 
Montano and Nicholl. Nicholl reports no serious 
damage, but Montano claims his Limacol was ir- 
reparably diluted in the deluge. 

The Invite was held in the third term with a 
goodly portion of Grier House turning out. 
Languedoc's Gallic charm may keep the rest of the 
year, but even Don couldn't devise a way to take 
more than one of his admirers to the dance and so 
almost everyone else was able to find a date. We 

say almost everyone: Harpur was in flames for days 
after the sound of the gunfire had at last died away. 

Mr. Bedard initiated a program whereby -the lot 
behind the House and beside the river will be bull- 
dozed and seeded to form a playing field for the 
House. The operation will be financed in part from 
profits from the Drink Shop. The field-conversion 
is one of the most important events to come out of 
the past year and all those who gave their time to 
hack away at trees and brush are to be thanked. 

This year's officers were a most able crew. 
Cobbett, the House Prefect, and his aides, Goldberg, 
Skutezky, Harpur, and Jones I did a fine job of 
keeping things in shape. The whole House appre- 
ciates the effort that they put out towards the 
running of an effieient House. 

And so another year draws to a close: Mr. Bedard 
is already planning for a third consecutive victory 
Inter-House Relay on Sports; Mr. Clifton is pre- 
paring to move to Prep House next year, and we 
wish him "bonne chance"; and Mr. Callan, who's 
beginning to understand our Housemaster, will be 
back to help him again next year. From all of Grier 
House to all of these: the profoundest of thank

B.C.S. defeated Stanstead in a combined Slalom 
and cross-country meet held at Hillcrest and on one 
of the Schools most rigorous cross-country trails. 
We were pleased to find that the competition from 
Stanstead was considerably tougher this year than 
it has been in the past. Future meets should prove 
to be even more interesting and exciting. 

The major event of the year, as usual, was the 
triangle meet with Ashbury and L.C.C., in com- 
petition for the Cochand Cup. Because of L.C.C.'s 
laudable prowess at cross-country, our only chance 
of success was to gain a substantial victory over 
them in the Alpine events. At the outset it ap- 
peared as though we might achieve this, and in 
fact, we were ahead of them at the end of the first 
run in the slalom. We were fated, however, to a 
great deal of bad luck in the second run, and in 
the Giant Slalom. The competition really hung in 
the balance of which team had the least disquali- 
fications, which were numerous on all sides. In 
this, L.C.C. turned out to have a more stable team, 
and they gained a well deserved victory. In the 

face of defeat though, our team spirit remained 
high, and we took the second place, beating out 
Ashbury by about the same margin as we were 
beaten. Everyone participating iq the meet learned 
a valuable truth from it. It was not the winning, we 
found, but the skiing which was important. 

In the Junior counterpart to the Triangle meet, 
the Sutherland Trophy, the B.C.S. Juniors fared not 
so well, taking fourth place overall, to Sedbureh 
L.C.C. and S.H.S. 

We are indebted to Mr. Read for his assistance 
in coaching the cross-country and the pre-season 
training, and especially to Mr. Troubetzkoy, who 
arranged not only the meets, but also the instruc- 
tion, the Zone memberships, the transportation and 
even the equipping of some of the skiers. Mr 
Troubetzkoy's time snd energy spent on us is 
deeply appreciated by us all, for without these 
valuable services, the very successful season we 
had would not have been possible.

"I just hate those 8th period Ftiday Calculus 
Classes, Mr. Grimsdell. Let's start a new timetable, 
and cut out 8th periods." 

These were the words that created a new time- 
table at B.C.S. 

This new timetable was expertly engineered by 
Messrs. Allan and Grimsdell. It was a little fussy 
in its concept, but turned out to be just the change 
in the routine that the students and masters needed. 
In brief all classes were now 45 minutes long, each 
day had 5 classes in the morning and two in the 
afternoon. There were six full days of classes be- 
fore the class arrangement for a particular day 
repeated itself. Thus in a five day week, the sixth 
day was carried over to the next Monday. The days 
were numbered Day One, Two, Three up to Six and 
posted around the School announcing what day it 
was. This six day "week" avoided the drag of 
having the same classes on the same day of the 
week, as now it took six weeks before the same 
order of days occurred on the same days of the 

The advantage of the new timetable were many. 
Mr. Allan no longer had to teach Calculus on the 
eighth period on Friday, secondly, there was a 
break in the regular routine, thirdly, the masters 
found that they could cover their topic more thor- 
oughly in 45 minutes than in 35, and finally there 
was less time wasted in the between class shuffle. 

The new timetable was inaugurated in the be- 
ginning of the third term, successfully completed a 
6 day trial period, and then was continued by pop- 
ular demand of the boys and the masters till the 
end of the new term.

Throughout Gerard's tenure as a French and 
Physics teacher, we all appreciated his cheerful- 
ness and his enthusiasm. Likewise, the camera 
buffs, the model club adepts and the astronomers 
"en herbe" will regret the departure of this ever- 
helpful soul. Also missed will be his "petite" 
Josette, theBenoits, Jean-Christophes and Magalies 
— not to mention his "2 chevaux." 

Gerard, we wish you all the happiness you de- 
serve in your new venture with the Civil Service in 


After forty-five years of being away from the 
School, Mr. John Mclntyre returned accompanied by 
a good friend of his. This friend of his, was a 
yellow Labrador Retriever, and Mr. Mclntyre wanted 
to tell the School about this dog. This dog probably 
has Canada's keenest nose and has already ac- 
cumulated a record of well over 1,000 rescues. 
'Champ' is the scout in a rescue party, as he goes 
out with a two-way radio on his back to growl re- 
ports to Mr. Mclntyre, and leads trie main party to 
the victim. 

Many of you may think that 'Champ' is just 
another Labrador; well, I am sorry to say, he has 
proven different. 'Champ' decided one day that he 
wanted to get away from routine for a while and he 
picked a wolverine as an adversary, to have a 
friendly fight — so he thought. He will remember 
that fight for some time and will always have a 
memory of it on his nose — about ten stitches. As 
for the wolverine, he is lying quite peaceably six 
feet under the ground. 

It is interesting to write that 'Champ' is very 
highly thought of in our country, and here are some 
figures to help show that. This dog is insured by 
Lloyd's for 5100,000, charges. $10,000 stud fee and 
gets 125,000 for his pups. 

Walt Disney has contracted 'Champ' for one of 
his movies, and maybe we will see this dog driving 
or flying a plane, which I promise you, Mr. Mclntyre 
says 'Champ' can do.

Our industry has its roots in the forest. We grow and plant 
millions of seedlings annually in order to assure a continuing 
supply of our raw material. 

Scientific forestry methods are used to manage the more than 
four million acres of timberlands which we own or control. 

We believe in making these timberlands available to the public 
for recreation wherever possible. The multiple use of our lands is 
a key factor in our forestry policy. 

The diversified products which we manufacture serve industry 
and the consumer. Our business interests extend from the United 
States to Canada and to most countries abroad. 

However, our most important asset is the people of St. Regis 
who have helped to build the company from a small newsprirrt 
company at the turn of the century to one of the 100 largest com-

During the past forty -eight years it has been our privilege to 
have a business association with this unique boys' school. 
During this time we have watched this famous school grow, 
we have watched its students prepare themselves for univ- 
ersity, continue to university, graduate and take their places 
among Canada's outstanding industrial, professional and 
political leaders. 

Many of the graduates of B. C. S. have taken part in two 
great wars of the Twentieth Century and many have paid 
the supreme sacrifice. 

It is with great pride and honor, that we are privileged to 
pay tribute, in this small way to a school of as high repute 
as Bishop's College School. 

May we take this opportunity of expressing congratulations 
for your progress, and wish you continued success in the 
years to come.
